From 14 to 29 September 2017
In “Breaking out” I show a set of works that are between the painting and the sculpture. The pieces that I present are a reflection on the procedural development of the painting. Redefine their traditional forms from the same criticism to the models and preset behaviors of artistic perception, taking into account their materiality and using a restricted chromatic range.
My creative task has led me to feel more and more an interest in playing and to show the emptiness, to leave the frame and to occupy other spaces, to experiment with the tension and the elasticity that the textile materials contribute and to incorporate the lived stories of the objects trouvé.
This way of proceeding in my work, has led me to empty the fabric of all thematic and leave it in its skeleton to reveal another vision or another experience in which, the frame goes from being a support to being a complement and sometimes ends up configuring its meaningful capacity.
