«(…) AnaMary Bilbao’s drawings (or are they paintings?), sheets of paper containing deliberately salvaged palimpsests – those irretrievable initial gestures –, explore memory in abstract terms. It is not so much memory, as a vernacular historicism which reveals episodes from the past, that interests the artist, but the transfiguration of the mnemonic process into pure plastic form, simultaneously bringing together revelation and concealment.» By Ana Cristina Cachola, «The Places of Art» (2014)
