ABOUT COMPOSITION OF A GRAY COLOR
These series of works start from taking records of movement and moving in the places I visit, the series is composed of records in Buenos Aires, San Andres de Giles, Salta and Jujuy. I take the relation of contemporary man with nature as a starting point of my work, I’m interested in the way this altermodern society is linked or communicates with it, how it creates ties or destroys it. I always worked with trees, being one of the elements of nature that is more linked to life, death and change. My earliest works were driven by the intention to return to nature its original state before the man used it for selfish purposes, using the waste of splints or furniture on the street.
Taking into account that nature is constantly in motion (born, growing, reproducing and dying for something to be born again), in 2015 I started producing works related to this concept, investigating from the idea that one must be moved from place, out of desire or need in search of something it does not have, in order to try to feel more complete (food, energy, affection, communication, etc.).
