The images from Black Box by Jorge López Pardo look like some pretty impressive real aerobatics, but they’re actually really impressive drawings!
From his website: BLACK BOX is composed of pieces made with graphite on canvas, accompanied by an installation. The main focus is the figure of the airplane that is placed in a variety of situations to allude the problems of the contemporary man and, in this way, become metaphor of the existence, dreams, through the great hardship, loneliness. The sobriety and the formal synthesis, as well as the vague environments, make these works spaces for a gaze toward the interior, a search that exceeds the limits of the machine and becomes eminently human.
