The Work of Art in the Age of Mechanical Reproduction

MOSAICS 360°

The mosaic that becomes a pixel, the pixel that becomes a photograph, a photograph that becomes a sculpture.
Mosaic 360 ° is the contemporary human being, aware of his body, aware of his role; an aesthetic human being, narcissus, to follow and share.
Mosaic 360 ° is a 360 degree view of who we are and who we were, they are paper and pvc “photoscultures”, a modern mosaic.
Two identical, mirrored photoscultures, one in black and white and the other in color. The past and the present confronting each other in an intimate look.

Portrait 360°

Attracted by the beauty of fabric construction and starting from the concept of warp and weft, I developed a system of representation of the image curious and innovative.

I started to investigate the ways in which a sheet of paper can change according to the type of cutting and bending, and I have identified in the system of weaving an alternate way to construct three-dimensional shapes. The idea is not to create three-dimensional objects based on body shape, but turning a two-dimensional surface like paper or canvas, 3D object adapted to body shapes. I have been using these two-dimensional surfaces as pictorial space and through an elaborate system of digitization of the image I created three-dimensional portraits. The result is a colorful sculpture of paper or canvas intertwined. Are portraits. Are people. Anonymous identities. It is an abnormality of mind. Portraits are a 360° of contemporary people.

Art in Residence 2017 | Qingjun International Art Center | Beijing | China

A personal vision of what piqued my feelings in the first 6 weeks of residence in Beijing. Through the use of stereotypical images and universally recognizable I drew a line between decoration and human aesthetics. A pictorial decoration that takes a module of “Temple of Heaven” in Beijing, a traditional porcelain of the Ming Dynasty, a portrait of a Chinese woman by the hair color unequivocally blacks, these are the subjects that make up the new work “Made in China” . Mine is an aesthetic and a synthesis operation that uses the shape of the human face to tell the worlds, places and ways of being human. A meeting between textures and colors, which shall presume to tell a continent, China, through an aesthetic vision. Despite the modernity and progress that has subjected this nation, uses and customs, traditions and the past live in harmony with the contemporary.

在北京居住的前 6 周内激起了我的感情的个人愿景。 通过使用刻板印象和普遍可识别的图像,我在装饰和人类美学之间划出了一条界限。 以北京“天坛”为模块的图画装饰、明代传统瓷器、中国女性发色鲜明的黑色肖像,这些都是构成新作《中国制造》的主题。 中国” 。 Mine 是一种美学和综合操作,它使用人脸的形状来讲述人类的世界、地点和方式。 质感与色彩的交汇,以审美的眼光,诉说着中国大陆。 尽管现代性和进步使这个国家受到影响,但用途和习俗、传统和过去与当代和谐相处。

遵循这种过去与未来之间的平衡,我利用中国传统美学的陈词滥调来重新改编一个更现代的故事,这个故事与人类通过装饰、绘画或自己的身体创造美的能力有关。 使用我工作了几年的成熟的纸交织技术,我发现了这个世界的这一部分完全相似,我创造了这个我特意称之为中国制造的新作品,因为它是在中国构思的,创造的 并想表明,中国不仅仅是世界工厂,更是我们常常忘记存在的特殊审美的发源地,我们应该给西方世界更多的空间和认可。
