This artists, we can't take our eyes off them. We love completely
what they're doing now, so we present them here.
Jiro draws conceptual maps after reading books. This system allows him to organize and synthesize the most relevant ideas, relating them to each other so it is easier for him to comprehend. Rizobe series is born from the abstraction resulting from white spaces generated on the diagram. The artist pays special attention to these voids and virtually represents the non-conscious.
“Algún día, así se estructurará en el interior del universo un mundo” Quizá eso habría pensado Euclides, si hubiera tenido ocasión de mirar en el futuro y hubiera podido observar cómo su geometría configuraba un suelo inmóvil, aquél en el que aún se construyen buena parte de los espacios de resguardo que habitamos. Ese mundo, no es el espacio indiferente al que supuestamente somos “arrojados”, según señalaba Heidegger, sino el espacio acogedor en el que la geometría nos provee de un hogar y de un mundo inteligible. Esta proyección ideal que nos permite sentirnos en “casa” es el tema central en la obra de Omar Barquet. [text by: Juan Pablo Anaya Arce]
My work Is a reflection on the endless levels of details in day-to-day life. In reality nothing is smooth, the closer we look the more we see. My sculptures are to be appreciated as windows through the mundane or rather--zoom-ins on what may be prosaic. They triangulate their position using evolutionary thinking,and transcendental experiences.
When I alter the object it reflects a new way of seeing. As I attempt to find the final nature of the form , I create new seams and new connections. These seams and connections build over time giving the work a corporal history of actions. I nurture these ways of building as if they were animals or plants, thereby alowing the object to create itself. My relationship with these materials is creatively symbiotic.
I believe artistic beauty resides in the interplay between the artist and a real, challenging and infinite world, my art is an excursion into that world.
Theresa Himmer received her MFA degree from the School of Visual Arts, New York and holds a Candidate degree (M.Arch equivalent) in Architecture from Aarhus School of Architecture, Denmark. Working between a studio practice and a practice within public space, she has been included in group-shows and created extensive urban installations in Denmark, England and Iceland, her base for almost 5 years. Coming to art through architecture, her practice is grounded in notions of place, site specificity and locational identity. Currently, she is engaged in a commission for site-specific urban installations in the Russian town of Perm and other in Mexico City, while participating in the Independent Study Program of Whitney Museum of American Art.
