Painting: Acrylic, Paper, Staples on Paper.
I am interested in linking my artistic practice with those aspects of reality that have been altered by the migratory process. I updated the purpose and conceptualization of my work, exploring different media than those I used in Venezuela, now assessing the precarious, the fragile, the impermanent; replacing the usual form of assembling by exchanging the glue (to make collages) with the metal staple. The use of this new element for the union of the parts, which I leave visible knowing its uncomfortable presence, synthesizes my process of subjective recomposition. By relating these works on paper with legal procedures, where folios are manipulated to order contents, and from the automatic gesture of stapling to unite, I seek to dissolve the edges between the production of art and bureaucracy.
The present work "Lámina 05" shows, on the one hand, my perseverance in the structuring of color, on the plane and the space, certifying my identity as an artist of color; and on the other, the evidence of my subjective transformation through the introduction of the staple as a means of junction, and as an aesthetic and expression element.
