Destruction is perceived mainly by our sight and I have been fascinated by the way it appears in front of us as degradation, fragility and deterioration of the materials and objects that humans stubbornly use and create. The attractive aesthetics of destruction is always present in our urban societies in a physical as well as in a virtual way. Its visual complexity, strength and appearance have captivated me to the point of making it the center of my artwork. Having as guide the visual illusion, I have been focusing my work in the appropriation of the image of damaged human creations, taking them to the artistic context and making evident the astonishing beauty that is found in the aesthetics of destruction. I think that these altered forms are also a clear metaphor of the contemporary human being that destroys itself, without even realizing it, menwhile is immersed in the maelstrom of the everyday urban life. However, the destruction is inherent to creation, to existence itself, everything is being constantly destroyed. There is no movement without damage nor life without movement. My work is thus a creation that comes from destruction.Want to contact? email me firstname.lastname@example.org
A car is today a necessary artifact in modern urban societies. Its destruction resembles an incessant self-annihilating human kind metaphor. This considered, Destruction in Mini Red (Destrucción en Mini Rojo) and Destruction in Ambassador (Destrucción en auto Ambassor) are part of the series called Sculptural Masks: Fragility.
Procedural artwork makes up this series and it shows the development and outcome of a real car being camouflaged to emphasize its structure vulnerability.
On one hand, the work Destruction in Mini Red shows the photographic registry of an automobile’s pictorial intervention which creates an illusion of collision. Ironically, this art piece requires meticulous work to achieve the visual replica of instant and random damage. On the other hand, the installation Destruction in Ambassador reproduces a car’s body with paper to remind us of its greatness and brittleness.
