One of the Great Vices, The pleasure of painting

"The abstraction in my work is important from always, my beginnings are abstract and then with time I incorporate the human figures as a 'body' of study, interesting the movement in block, the sequence and the displacement of man, in the background also his anatomy, "he explains. The artist mentions the transcendental nature of flowing through abstraction, her work in that sense, becomes a poetic language that refers to great masters of cubist painting as an aesthetic legacy of a transcendental event on a pictorial level, which is necessary to rescue, in addition, the process also becomes important, where the contents and concepts are praising the look and the stroke: "In this form of my own doing, there is the geometry where the game of the line, the stroke, the perspective are woven along with the human figure, men who start towards unexpected spaces, free, playing; sometimes moving, sometimes impassive, sometimes inert. Looking for balance, free associations irrational in a free composition "

The abstraction allows to reconnect certain points that do not seem to have connection, in a personal imaginary, that is transmuted from the internal to the external and, of course, to the public that does not look undaunted a work but rather it is related to it and the context.

I begin the dialogue in some way between the conscious and the unconscious, and that is where the mystery of art lies. The work begins to have its own life, it's like being alone and sending you the guidelines and one just executes. Regarding my influences of cubism and surrealism. I think it is pertinent to name automatism, analytic cubism in close relation to geometry.

The series "Arriving at the goal" is an exercise in expression that plays with the possibilities of displacement on the canvas, both at a compositional level as textual.

FRANCISCA CASTAÑO GONZALEZ

 

Francisca Castaño has developed an artistic work that wanders between different languages ​​of art, where abstraction and movement are central axes of a sculptural, graphic and pictorial production, in which both the body and the action of the movement portray a work that travels between Cubist imaginaries and heterogeneous silhouettes in constant relationship and dynamism between the cubist and the surreal. "The abstraction in my work is important from always, my beginnings are abstract and then with time I incorporate the human figures as a 'body' of study, interesting the movement in block, the sequence and displacement of man, in the background also its anatomy”.

The beginning is always a 'chaos' since the freedom of space, the lack of sensory and perspective limits, starting in white is going to compose, building and ordering chaos. Then comes the calm and the process is more rational, I start to enjoy doing and give some material glimpses to something that seemed to be just wandering in an internal process that circulates with fluidity.

SCULPTURE IN BRONZE

I'm interested in baroque, probably because of the formal complication, the use of all available space, recharging with curved elements, straight, interstices and the expansion of the work towards the Infinite.
