About the artwork
This installation changes our vision of painting as a medium for works of art.
This is how she proposes a reset on the approach of the medium of painting to not represent objects, but to physically materialize what it represents. The painting is camouflaged as the object from which it takes shape in order to offer a direct confrontation to its viewer.
For this, the artist chose to materialize five characters, geometrically deconstructed, which take the form of metal signboards, mounted on real posts and real bases.
