Illustrating the path Julia Valdés has taken would involve weighing her initial oscillation between the representational and the abstract, and how drawing has functioned in the course of her artistic career: from an almost essential role moving to a subordinate function by being inserted into spots, on the perimeter, or timidly appearing within concealed spaces, as her palette changed the course of her chromatic preferences or were subordinated to other topics that came to motivate her. That trajectory—which should be reconstructed sometime—came to show the ascendant rhythm of her discourse, indicating the stages of her work as a whole. Such a task is beyond the scope of this chronicle, the purpose of which is to provide a possible way of interpreting her more recent production.
