I have been always fascinated by colors, by the relation among themselves and the potential of different associations.
PALETTES are geometric constructions, using as reference, color associations from external sources. This series of works reflect my desire to establish connections with the environment and other people using the alchemy of colors as a source of inspiration.
PALETTES were made using as reference the colors from the MICROCODMOS and the DIALOGICAL PAINTINGS series.
Either the fluidity on the MICROCODMOS or the strength of the marks left on the DIALOGICAL PAINTINGS come from the choice of giving up some control, open space for the unpredictable, and capture and fix the vitality of a body in action with its free expanded gestures. These paintings are traces of events.
Differently, PALETTES are geometric and organized constructions generated by a solitary and controlled movement. These opposite dynamics were decisive in the choice of the scale. Palettes are restrained small scale works while DIALOGICAL PAINTINGS and MICROCODMOS need a wider working surface dimension to receive a more expanded gesture.
The choice of the scale in the two approaches also was made according to the intention of establishing proximity or distance between the work and the artist or viewer. Looking at short distance to the DIALOGICAL PAINTINGS we can feel inside the work and apprehend the vitality of the gesture that generated the painting, while when we look at the PALETTES, no matter how close we are, we tent to feel ourselves in an outside place.
