Two Argentine artists

Jorge Sarsale
Click on the images (from a google search) to enlarge; click on the names to learn more about the artist.

What appeals to me about their work: black/white; lines; marks. Were they made in a "no-mind" (zen: wu-wei) state? Stupia's works have that quality of having used the artist as an intermediary, rather than the artist being in control of what happens on the page. (I'm in two minds about whether that's a good thing, though!) Sarsale's series seem to have arisen out of rules he laid out for himself. (I can relate to that...)
