Verónica González Ugarte
1973. Santiago, Chile
Veronica Gonzalez continues to develop her work with feathers. Real feathers and artificial feathers die-cut with laser, in tissues of fine silk fabrics, mounted on paper. Feathers are a part of the basic alphabet of the artists vocabulary ; they are simple forms -although only in appearance- with which the artist arms expressive surfaces in the manner of a visual pentagram. Another part of her language, uses uniform, abstract surfaces, worked manually or mechanized manner on different supports, particularly plastics, Hanji paper, and fabrics.
Important to emphasize once again the extreme care in the manufacture of these works. Every detail deserves all the attention and solvency of the artist in the handling of the very diverse procedures used: selection of materials and their suitability, dyes and colorations, textures, adhesives and stitching, cuts and slimmings, mounts on a rigid support, generally a frame with linen and silk paper; sometimes the wall directly, as supporting. The manipulation of die cuts of silks as compositional elements of new works. These perforated cloths generate a very light visual surface. They play the role of a strange grid where the voids are forms of feathers. The work is composed of an absence; it would seem the silence of the feathers, his silence and absence.
