TARDOR (autumn)
a work process


Description of work:

The artist feels the nature in autumn and tries to convey this sensibility through the plastic work. The shapes, light and its distribution within the space are components of art and as such are subject to the discretion of the artist, his sensibility, his intelligence, technique used and the concept of art itself.

The leaves are a substantial element of this work. The shape and color of the leaves are a formal function, and their spatial distribution is partly developed and partly random. These components, the shape, color and distribution of the leaves, are intended to create in the viewer an extrapolation of the work that will produce a formal poetic perception so that they intuit that extends beyond its actual limits.

As for the technical side, we must bear in mind that the work was done under water. To begin with, a web was prepared thread which is placed above the twenty-five square of a dark bluish cellulose, previously prepared out of water, joined by small gaps and overlaps. The template was used the accompanying figure, which has a large number of holes or cut. Cellulose, which was prepared in four tones grouped into two groups depending on the proximity of colors, plus any intermediate tone was applied inside the holes in the template with a fabric below.

Since the fabric of most of these filtrates were left within the water surface in freefall, with random play always water and the same cellulose and once the background, some are moved or changed.

You can draw a parallel between the technique just explained and the very natural process of falling leaves that inspired the work. However, the artist's creative freedom means that in this case, the presence of branches and the vertical distribution of leaves do not follow this parallel and possibly represent a contradictory way.

In short, we can say that the artist, based on a symbiosis of natural processes, produces a highly abstracted set plastic trying to raise awareness and evoke the autumn.
