The artist SUB30 Nicole Muller absorbed as much as possible of the culture of Buenos Aires to make a series of collages and small paintings that later ended in larger paintings and animations after her residence in ´ace.
Using paint, collage, and stop-motion animation, I developed a language of lines, shapes, and squiggles that dance around the ideas of chaos vs. balance, relationships and transformation. My work is a process of bringing together contrasting elements and trying to make a cohesive whole, to create an abstract narrative where change is constant.
Small and immediate collages end in large paintings and in some cases in wall paintings or experimental animations. I like the idea of diverse voices and ideas, absurd materials and markings, harmoniously fused in a painting.
The character creation will be inspired by the colorful culture, architecture and landscape of Buenos Aires to further explore the relationship between entry and exit, and the process of filtering one into the other.
