Collection: Mera Rivera

"My work reflects through painting on what subsists despite the passage of time. It focuses on the concept of the degraded as a reflection of the temporary and natural corrosion of the surface. I try to capture what prevails as opposed to the appeal of the ephemeral. By placing great importance on technical research, I seek to represent the natural force of the erosion process. Inspired by images resulting from this process, such as leaks, rust (etc), which visually break with the controlled and polished planes, empty of content. The aesthetics of the weathered is generally perceived as negative, but, nevertheless, when isolated and decontextualised, a warmth, a mystery that was previously lacking, can be appreciated, transforming it into poetic images."
