THE SKINS

2020-21

Don't just talk, see.

Don't just see, feel.

Don't just feel, hear.

Don't just hear, listen.

Don't just listen, ponder and doubt. 

What do you hear?”

 

HANDS, HEARTS, SKINS, EYES ongoing series is an exploration and reflection on human communication. A metaphorical observation of today's form of connection. ​Today, we are surrounded by words and voices used to call, email, tweet, share, yet, there is the potential for all of us to feel hurt and vulnerable for not being heard as the conceptions of words are lost in literal and virtual realities — untouched and unheard. One of the biggest problems from this century, which we all confront, is the prevalence of noises over voices. The world needs silence. Not on the contrary of words, but to stretch the time for hearing in the gaps of words —feeling and pondering. Words born from silence perhaps can seek their conclusion in silence, to make a passage from silence into the world of communication through re-thinking, remembering and doubt in hearing definition. 

I'm preoccupied with the existential process of being, thinking and making. This series of works from a theoretical, autobiographical and phenomenological map through a poetical approach tries to reach us within us. When I make art, I don't think about art. I think about us—humans. How we see and how we think. Perception is everything that forms in interrogation, recollections and contemplation, so art is my shortcut for the closeness of thinking by making with a hope to create visual reflections, for feeling and change, in the freedom of images and imaginations. Art has always been made from change and for change. Art is a verb!
