Maybe it is the idiosyncrasies of Helga’s way of
seeing things, special and passionate, that makes
her collection on paper so forceful. Because
paperis somewhat fragile, on the point of slipping
away. There is something of a love letter, those that
are blown away and reach their recipients like the
kisses, as mentioned by Kafka in Letters to Milena,
that are drunk by the ghosts of dawn. Works on
paper also have a very secretive element: their very
frailty means they have to remain stored for long
periods of time, away from prying eyes, only for the
eyes of the owner. Always intuitive, Helga de Alvear
soon understood the importance of works on
paper – especially drawings – that has begun to
govern the current scene, offering that portion of
freedom for creators that they may not be able to
achieve using other techniques given the intimacy
that paper affords.
