proyecto abcd 2011
My work is almost always a spatial ambition. Sometimes I use paint, sometimes, sculpture, and light and color as argument, inviting the wandering between a changing pieces that invite stopping look. My works are predominantly visual, but owning a rhythm that gives shape to the concept. I use light as a metaphor of natural loops. The material is the symbol of the path that leads. The road is not the end nor the beginning; It is the thread, poetry of movement. And with light, color. Lights interests me that expand on the floor, walls and ceiling, drawing a chromatic writing and producing a dialogue of shadows weaving a new set of reflections and perceptions that lead me to the Myth of the Cave.
This image is part of the paper version of a project in Portugal. Here, dialogue is formed by the viewer and space. The piece is “full” of holes where the action takes place. Each is a “spider web” that “chase” the changes of time and space; are observations of reality, holes to look. Allegory of ambiguous perceptual situation where the man is, the facility will be a succession of images of light of different colors that change individually. The viewer is not involved in the changes: You can only use the imagination to predict the next, as the collective environment of his own life.
MERCEDES LARA (DAIMIEL, 1967).
A Mercedes Lara likes to create “good atmosphere”. His pieces, two-dimensional, three-dimensional, are areas for reflection from which transcend from associated sensory stimuli in sight. “Holes” is a preview of its future stop on Luis I Foundation in Cascais Cultural Centre (2011). Before, their atmospheres recalarán this month in Japan. Lara will partner with the environment as it did in the building Fisac in Daimiel or Valladolid Pimentel Palace
