liña" is canario for sowing thread. Invisible threads
are stretched out horizontally, balancing over bouncy backgrounds,
responding to the critique that my work is often considered unbalanced.
Reframed urben relics explode over fundaments of trivial plastic
refuse. Sunrise over the beach. No djinns left in the bottles.
objects trigger associations, fragments of stories that are allowed
to develop subconsciously. A toy animal, a key, a plastic mandala
are in a way "readymades", yet instead of losing their
original function they are actively transformed into a part of
the picture. My fellow origami-agents and others in-the-know will
see the obvious relation to the "sum larger than its singular
parts" meme. To further elaborate, the unrecogniseable objects
have no clear associative value, their are purer, as trash often
is. They are void of information, and could be seen as "notalreadymades".
light- and shadowplay break up the monochrome surfaces, an effect
I´ve used for years: "Aufmerzing", covering pieces
in layer upon layer of paint, merging the objects into a whole.
This play changes as your gaze moves over the canvases, diverting
the focal point like in a fold-out makimono picture. Furthermore
these four works seem to extend beyond the edges of each wood
plate, which they don´t.
you read them as musical scores, you´ll find the creative
method pretty similar to my sound work, singular sound events
happening over a more or less obvious drone of repetition. A myriad
of seemingly unconnected glitches bubbling over disciplined ground.
Chaos as composition. The spillage of glue as echoes and effects.
think they probably meant unbalanced as the use of the term "them";
to induce stage paranoia; with your years in the industry of Art
and industry process as well you should not even consider on alternative
explanations, keep your guard up; show your left hand and hit
with the rite elbow .. must advice/suggest to let criticism know
about "the ethics of imagery and the conducts of ontologies."
-"unbalanced" its not even fit for a criticable issue..."
