it is on this page where the other I manages to preserve in the immortality of the internet, fragments of my reality
/Final Assesment/Graduation Work?
The quarantine gave me these two dualities;
Depigmentation by sun (sunbathing, tanning?) at my balcony in my house in lockdown
Hiper-pigmentation by me the carrier at my studio after the freedom to go back to kabk
“Just because you dont see doesnt mean its not there”
“Solo porque tu no lo ves, no significa que no este ahi”
A room full of them
Waiting and watching you
Capturing their individuality
Reflecting their magical qualities
The dance between colour, the sun, and the artist
A teacher asked me yesterday “What is the role of my artwork in society?” And i didnt know what to say exactly. Because I don’t know what it does to the audience in itself and my communication tactic is all about the end result because i want to have and effect on the colour landscape and it’s tactile ability it is creating in relation with the audience. I do put a lot of emphasis on the work aspect of it, the history and how i achieved what i did. And I feel sometimes teachers forget this astral and cosmic aspect of humanity because they want communication to be direct and simple. It cannot have surprises or mystisism because their eyes cannot perceive it - this idea of seeing is believing also destroys the freedom of faith and the strangeness of the world. So I said this “You could say that my work explores this deaccelerating idea of handicrafts and going back to millennial knowledge of creating and doing.”
Furthemore, i also think there is this mystical sense as well as how people react to the brightness or dullness of the pigments, the unusual portraying of a painting as a “tapestry” without definitive edges or endings. Because it is not a conventional structure, but rather emulates a rather wild aspect of the material; freedom.
mi mente estaba revoltosa asi que deje mi cuadro en el balcon de mi casa con las energias cosmicas del sol y la luna, las estrellas, la lluvia, el calor y frio, las aves que se paran en la baranda de mi balcon etc.
Aqui les muestro como quedo despues de 38 dias afuera.
Todavia este cuadro esta ahi en libertad y es dia 46.
My mind was unruly so I left my painting on the balcony of my house with the cosmetic energies of the sun and the moon, the stars, the rain, the heat and cold, the birds that stand on the railing of my balcony etc.
Here I show you how I am after 38 days out.
This painting is still free and it is day 46.
e usado guantes de cocina para teñir mis telas casi todas las veces que hago mi ritual pero siempre, aunque no lo quiera, mi piel se volvia el color del pigmento que usaba. estos pigmentos aveces se quedan dias de dias de dias conmigo y los guantes poco a poco se tiñen tambien - y los guardo porque es parte de mi investigacion. alguna ves fui al museo voorlinden en wassenar en donde habia una exhibicion de armando (artista holandes) y en donde sus guantes llenos de pinturas eran gran parte de su proceso.
yo tambien guardo mis guantes locos y esta ves, los uni con una trenza de color lila para crear un bouquet contemporáneo que me inspire porque mi prima de canada se caso por facebook live en plena crisis de salud.
lo fisico volvera en tiempo y volveremos a ser táctiles sin protección en las manos
I have used kitchen gloves to dye my fabrics almost every time I do my ritual but always, even if I don't want to, my skin became the color of the pigment I used. These pigments sometimes stay days of days of days with me and the gloves gradually dye too - and I keep them because it is part of my research. I once went to the voorlinden museum in wassenar where there was an exhibition of armando (dutch artist) and where his gloves full of paintings were a big part of his process.
I also keep my crazy gloves and this time, I tied them with a lilac braid to create a contemporary bouquet that inspired me because my cousin from Canada married on Facebook live in the midst of a health crisis.
the physical will return in time and we will return to being tactile without protection in the hands
