SUB30 RESIDENCIES

Divine presence

05.03.2018 to 28.03.2018



Teresita Jiménez is an artist whose work involves geometric compositions from photographs of different textures of nature that she takes. Contemplation, as an encounter and meditation, is an important part of her process, an aspect that can be clearly observed in her precious compositions. During the residency in 'ace she has acquired the photolithographic technique, which allowed her to intervene and add new layers, depths and presences to the photos, new encounters with nature.

ARTIST’S STATEMENT

Walter Benjamin says that "photography allows us to see and understand more of the world around us". The camera is used as a tool to observe, select and capture images of elements of nature, trying not only to capture the visible qualities manifested in it, such as the theme of color and texture, two contents that will be important in the composition of the work-, but also seeks to cover the theme of Nature as an element worthy of contemplation. Nature understood as Divine Creation, work of God.
On the other hand, the concept of perception enters the game through a visual effect, where an invitation to meditation is made through the recognition, interpretation and meaning that is carried out from the observation of an image created with elements of the natural world.
