Humberto Duque carefully draws each one of his animations; he combines characters and situations showing only the top of the iceberg and thus builds a narrative that manifests itself through the silent voice of the sketch, a voice that harmonizes with the intimate pleasure of reading. In some way or another these animated narrations, that at first sight seem to be watered down by the absence of sound, leads one to think that something more happens within them. Each artwork is filled with a good dose of the absurd and a sense of humor that allows one to move slowly forward towards an indefinitely open logic, and to enjoy the drawings as one would enjoy a good book whose readings never end.
(Luis C. Hurtado)
