Nature Morte

« Une authentique nature morte naît le jour où un peintre prend la décision fondamentale de choisir comme sujet et d'organiser en une entité plastique un groupe d'objets. Qu'en fonction du temps et du milieu où il travaille, il les charge de toutes sortes d'allusions spirituelles, ne change rien à son profond dessein d'artiste : celui de nous imposer son émotion poétique devant la beauté qu'il a entrevue dans ces objets et leur assemblage. »
Charles Sterling, 1952

Alexi Williams and Esther Planas will participate in a 3 day workshop as an explorative journey into the shifting nature
of perception through the extreme sport of looking and drawing repetitively from a still life.

Through exposing the creative act it ceases to be about the end product rather an exhibit of the shifting state of human consciousness.

This joint and timed workshop looks for the re-enactment of such classic procedures to become highly ritualistic and at the same time subject for their mutual scrutiny and dialogue.

The resulting works will be displayed during the next days of the show.

all of the strategies
of simulation :
and self mockery ------
leaving the left
with only a phantom
of the truth
the terms
and "virtual"
summarize this liquidation
in which every
signification is eliminated
by its own sign, and the
profusion of signs parodies
a by now unobtainable reality.

field works visual note book about my interaction with PISO proyecto as guest to their Practica sessions during my "voyage to Puerto Rico "

During my trip to Puerto Rico coming from Cali , Colombia on the first days of December , I have 'encountered" all sort and most of unexpected situations , relations , reactions and context .
On this mode for the unsuspected , I "improvised" or decided to improvise at a very inspiring "action " I happen to be taken to .
The "action" consisted of PISO proyecto:
The context and the space was a "barrio" a "department for goof food" El Departamento de la Comida ( see link ) and its back streets .
Musicians playing and singing navidad music taked us for a mini ride "pasa calle" as in the most traditional style where we stop at the front of the houses and sing along and clap with the neihgbors all desiring each other Felicidades , Happiness .
Later we entered El Departamento, the PISOS where all placed close to each other, but separate in the front space at the entrance of the dept .
