Fusion

2013–2015

With Fusion I intend to explore rela­tion­ships and memo­ries, trying to give a phy­si­cal and visual dimen­sion to sen­sa­tions and emo­tions that I can­not express effec­ti­vely with words. At first I cut out shapes in mir­ro­red paper to create reflec­tive sculp­tures in the form of a still life or por­trait. In the second phase I pho­to­graph these com­po­si­tions, using my com­pu­ter screen to create and shape seve­ral reflec­tions in them.

The result of this pro­cess is close to an idea of modern expres­sio­nist pain­ting, as I try to convey emo­tions through the use of par­ti­cu­lar colours and shapes. The bou­quets of flo­wers refe­rence loca­tions of my child­hood, while the por­traits tend to depict the faces of people I lost contact with, and who I can only recall through memory.
