VIEW IN MY ROOM
Collage: Ink, newspaper, Paper on Cardboard.
A moment an instant, this is what each work represents, the author invites the viewer to see each sheet, each canvas, each frame as an instant in his life seen in depth, like through a spyglass or a telescope.
Every line that crosses the moment, depicts as a person, something happening, something that has somehow influenced this moment with its path, its being there.
Each stretch, each stroke enters the canvas and exits or enters to end there or is otherwise born within the moment and then exits or die there; the spectator can identify some of those traits, lines and curves and follow them imagining what or who they represent.
The position of each line or trait is essential to weight its importance to the beholder, that’s why some are marginal while others central, some rise from the margin go to the centre or vice versa some drop put od attention.
The clear contrast between the simplicity of the materials, mainly papercuts, paper and ballpoint pen, is the way the artist uses to underline the complexity of what the moment manages to express opposite to the fragility and delicacy and brittleness of that same moment, which can be even forgotten, erased from the witness’s memory.
The subjectivity that characterizes these works will allow the spectator to determine the duration of the moment, which may be short, almost an instant or it may last a month, a year, a decade, as long as a whole life; this decision can only be made by the empowered viewer.
Endless lines that enter the outline of the canvas and then come out in a path that started physically and temporally. A moment before entering the canvas which we can describe as invisible and unknown, then we enter the space of the canvas and finally we move out towards an invisible and unknown beyond.
The space of the canvas is the telescope, the spyglass through which we look outside ourselves. The lines represent the world outside of us which is made up of everything.
These lines enter at a given moment in the viewfinder of the telescope, entering the canvas with their paths and then leaving it.
On the canvas the artist also paper cuts which are strongly representative images of the moment to reinforce the idea of how events continually overlap in the world but we remain and we only know what enters our canvas and our spyglass.
