About Amelia Errazuriz T

SHORT DESCRIPTION MY WORK
WHY DID I MAKE IT-WHAT WAS MY EMOTIONAL DRIVE BEHIND IT.

By chance I stopped once at a framing shop and saw a big pile of descarded wooden frames. I decided to collect them and to give them a second life. These small pieces of wood embodies a big memory and many stories, besides its differents natures such as color, size, syles etc.
I look for their uncertainties to create something different and unique, before being waste and long before being a found object and after becoming a work of art with a rich poetry component.

SHORT TECHNICAL DESCRPTION OF TH WORK (method used, techniques, process involved) (100 words)

The geometrical order that I build is created by a modular way as a pixel that shapes the new art work. This is a long, pacient and carefully way to assemble the fragments that creates a new and contemporary art work in a unique and
distinctevely way .

Education

I was born and Iive in Santiago, Chile. I studied Arquitecture in the Universidad Católica de Chile (besides that I always wanted to be an artista) and a Diploma of Visual Arts at the same university. I have had many collective and solo shows in Chile and abroad.
As an arquitect my way of conceiving an art work has a special way. At first when I sarted as a profesional artist I wanted to recreate and show in a different way the everyday chilean landscape, now instead I build new visibilities of the everday objetcts and leftovers.
These objects that nobody pays attention are for my eyes, a fabulous and fascinates me: my aim is to find the order of the apparently desorder of the waste that shows the quick and big transformations of the contemporary world we live on.
