VISION. EVERYTHING IS CONNECTED.
“Heaven, earth and I live together, and all things and I form an inseparable unity.”
The artwork presented below is aesthetically located within the geometric abstraction. It is the culmination of the artist’s personal path, his gaze and his contribution to abstract art. Art is a way to understand and connect with life, to philosophize about it and to establish connections that help us to understand its meaning. Art is the door that opens us to totality, in a *holistic and universal sense.
W. Kandinsky stated that “it is a matter of going to the encounter of life, of making its pulsation perceptible and of establishing the laws that govern it”.
A Buddhist wise man was once asked, what the purpose of life was. He answered that “the purpose of life is nothing more than to be life, to operate as life under its own rules”. In this sense this abstract art is understood; formal compositions whose meaning is to exist and be generated under their own structural rules, thus obtaining their own sense of being as an artistic work, being its meaning extrapolated to any aspect of life.
The pictorial work is presented as a formal system. A formal system is an element composed of diverse interrelated parts. When creating a formal system, the aim is to capture and abstract the essence of certain characteristics of the real world (nature), in a conceptual model expressed in a certain formal language. There is a law that operates, the law of interrelation, which is a universal principle, that defines each form within the whole and gives them that sense of being in relation to the whole.
“The spaces in which the painter operates have laws; the forms that manifest themselves in such spaces do so according to these fundamentally geometric laws.
Each form is created on the basis of relationships (direct or indirect) with the other forms, giving rise to a defined composition under this integral and unitary logic. The forms just not only exist, but co-exist. The same occurs with other systems (such as biosystems), where each form of life is integrated within the global system by a complex order of interrelationships that defines its forms (of life) with the others. There are no isolated or non-integrated elements. Everything functions as a global whole, a universe, a cosmos.
Regarding the working process, images are generated through digital image manipulation. Computational algorithms model the forms in a first stage. Later, the structure is worked on under two premises; a line has to delimit at least two forms or if it only affects one form, it has to connect with a cardinal point of the frame and delimit another form. Once you have all the knowledge of the structure, the composition can be altered (eliminating, adding, modifying forms) without this going against the sense of the composition, since any change is integrated within the system. The next step is to build the image on the canvas and create it using the appropriate technique.
*Methodological and thinking position that poses the approach of systems of any kind: social, physical, biological, mental, etc., from a total perspective. It is an overview of things, which prefers to consider the system as an integrated and global whole.
