EDGARD CAMACHO:
The space between here and there

 

Exhibit dates: August 4 – 29

 

ARTIST STATEMENT

“In the beginning everything was about drawing defined images. Recently, I became interested in deconstructing human figures to search for shapes. Later, I draw those shapes on bidimensional surfaces to create tangible and intangible dimensions.  There is a space that connects what is seen and that what is imagined; I chose the human body as a reference because it mysteriously and instinctively recognizes that space. I like to go over and over again into a painting,  addressing it in a cold and mechanical manner; removing my feelings as much as I can and allowing the artwork to reveal its own personality.  The art-making process is followed by moments of letting go.  That’s when the space between here and there is created: it’s a moment when the process has become an endless art piece.”
