DRAWING IN THE DARK is a book that reproduces 82 of the 300 drawings that António Jorge Gonçalves made in white pencil on black notebooks between 2020 and 2021. Applying an inversion process – used in woodcuts, for example – in which what is in white is drawn instead of what is in black, the artist recorded urban landscapes, domestic cloisters, wanderings through nature, an attentive selection of fragments in everyday life. Exploring this graphic language, the reader ends up realizing that those black pages are like dark rooms illuminated by a white pencil.
