Artwork Description:

Technique: Oil and objects on wood. This work belongs to the Seattle Project series. It's title is The Gaias witnesses. My pictures are planned on the golden section, a mathematical relationship observed in several creations of the nature and already found in the mathematical studies of the ancient people. Using it and doing some mathematical calculations, I try to solve, in a constructivist way, the challenge of the composition. After several studies, I determine the golden rectangles and I locate several focal points and areas where the symbolic elements will be stuck. The logarithmic spirals and the lines of force appear as natural consequence of the use of the golden section and rectangles. In some pictures, I created a type of closed circle where the picture is a detail of it and this detail is the own picture. Now it is the moment of working the symbolic elements that will be stuck in the points or focal areas of each picture. Among the symbolic elements they are physical-mathematics formulas and artistic elements painted separated in cardboard, which represent the real human progress; seeds and leaves of trees (prepared to not deteriorate) which represent the naturalism; computer pieces which represent the domain of the technology in the current society; scrap elements; images produced through graphic computation, etc. Some elements that are repeated in several works, could be classified as a repertoire which emphasizes a personal universe of meanings, since the use of those elements as details, or as foreground, forces the spectator to examine the metonymical relationships of the pictures, provoking him some questions. The objective is that he gets his own conclusions on the theme approached through a subjective language! The outcome is complicity or denial, it does not matter, because the both form a kind of involvement that lead him to the essence of what I am trying to transmit.
