Heritages for Isabel

 

While I was thinking about what I wanted to do for an art fair in which I was going to participate, my iaia passed away and I decided to pay a tribute to her through a series of pieces that I titled “Herencias para Isabel”.

The set of pieces makes up a portrait of my grandmother through the objects in her house that most reminded me of her and the phrases that she used to tell me the most, which I have used as the title of the works.

This series is a tribute to my iaia in particular, but also a tribute to all the grandmothers and their great work within the family.

Those of us who are the children of working parents have had them as a second mother, their role is fundamental in parenting and the help they give parents is worthy of recognition.

Heritage

 

Someone is conscious of a change when they face the same object or situation and their reaction is different.

 

One day, I was visiting my grandma, and i found out once again with one of those little porcelain figures that everyones grandma would have at their house. I’ve always found them quite ugly, and i never understood the reason for them, neither in which moment people found them in any way appealing. But in that exact moment my perception of them changed and suddenly i discovered myself appreciating them differently.

 

“HERITAGE” it consists on a series of frames, where i represent my grandma’s porcelain figures through a new look, it’s called maturity. In these pieces grows a universe through a subtle juxtaposition of different languages and iconographic elements, in which the objects are used as fetish to build up the meaning of life and whats lived.
