Description:
Everything that is waste and leftovers, for me it is the driving force, gestural, manual, and transformative. The nature of Assemblages comes from an archeological and intuitive process. The work is born and emerges from the collection of time-worn materials, mainly stacked wood waiting for incineration The materials are selected and organized in groups – I feel the textures, colors, softness/rigidity, smells, roughness, shapes, sizes... The material culture, its production, consumption and disposal are the thematic thread of my artwork, providing artistic and aesthetic visibility. Fragments of materials left behind, abandoned along the human trajectory, pulsing inside me, sensory reframing and creative power. I see them as fragments of feelings, healing fragments. Under a careful, thorough and sensitive eye, cuts, grooves and cracks reveal material wounds crying out for liberation, personification, and revitalization. The sewing with the cold and hard wire, the melting with hot and soft wax, stopping the cracks with hinges, acting in the artwork like a resistance force. The poetic of the artwork seeks to express, by the driving force of the art, how the material elements can become active, agents and present reflections about today’s most urgent issues in aesthetic-formal arrangements, such as building an ecological awareness and pro-life. The purpose of my artwork is to challenge the viewer’s eye and raise questions about painful dualities such as wealth/poverty, beautiful/ugly, construction/destruction, new/old, useful/useless.
