CHAIRS (IN THE DIMENSION OF MEANING)
This series I worked for 3Garantias Art Studio, where I explored the meanings we attach to everyday objects.
Trying to combat preconceived notions about things we use every day and give for granted.
To create CHAIRS I play with perspectives and dimensions. Reclaim old chairs, take them apart and combine them to become new, complete sculptures. I hand paint the embroidery, vintage fabrics and wood to create flat, almost two-dimensional pieces,
so that it is difficult to tell where the piece ends and the new story begins.
The contrast between the Victorian era where there was a strong religious drive for higher moral standards and the action painting where the paint is spontaneously dribbled and splashed on the piece. Creates and ambivalence where the spectator is uncertain and cannot make a choice. The conflict of ideas on your mind, makes a bold statement of freedom.
This piece honors conversations that go beyond words. It represents feelings and emotions that change the chemistry of our body, it blares the borders of the physical and spiritual world.
We go through life living a trace, a little sample of who we are.
Imprinting our essence to the closest, this piece shows the marks, the scars and wounds in our soul.
This piece flows with responses without involving reason. Like an animal lurking, hiding in the grass, staring.
The colorful threads represent the different subjects we talk about, the conversations.
When comparing yourself with others, there’s always going to be a better version of you in every aspect. The trick is to live the noise out and focus on the thread that takes you inside… yourself, your mind, beyond your thoughts or judgments.
Living in the present.
We look at it from a distance, but when we get close, if we get close, we pay attention, stare at the details, inside the cracks, at the core of a person. When we take time to really look at somebody, that’s when we find the music, the joy, the blue sky, the breeze in your skin ant the warm ray of sun on your back.
