The distinction of the artist’s work can be the indistinction. Extending the idea of the silent to an absent creator, I investigate different levels of imbedding myself in my work and still remain vague and abstract. Using body as both tool and material, techniques that allude to dearth practices relate with personal identity of a mute, mummified absence. Exploring the possibilities of the medium as a bearer of content, themes of expression and individual identity are reflected though the omitted body. Unmediated contiguity to the material creates physical containers, leaving intimate traces that represent a notion of self.
Turning to the technique of removal in order to convey blockage visually, pieces imbued with signs of human existence are intended as echoes of the artist’s figure. Negative imprint withholds the transformation offered by materials and moulds in direct contact with my body, seeking to incarnate projections to space as expression of character. Preoccupation with the human form is expressed through its absence, being suggestive of personal fragility, whereas the negative impressions function as elements that intend to complete the whole. The element of identity is always present in the work as a kind of implied counterpart, through the reversed qualities that confuse and obstruct admission. Inversion of surface is used as a metaphor for an inversion of values, transforming emptiness to solid and contrasting to absence.
