This section characterizes drawing as the opening of form, which can be envisioned in two ways: opening in the sense of a beginning, departure, origin, dispatch, impetus, or sketching out, and opening in the sense of an availability or inherent capacity. In the first sense, drawing evokes more the gesture of drawing than the traced figure. In the second, drawing implies that the figure is essentially incomplete. Also included in this section is a “Sketchbook” of quotations on art from Yves Bonnefoy, Éliane Escoubas, Antonio Saura, Stéphane Mallarmé, and Jean-Christophe Bailly.
