Mercedes Lara

10.09.2016 – 05.11.2016

After a pictorial period in which her work already reflected a clear interest in lights not in the shadows, although these will serve to focus the viewer’s attention in the first, began a period we might call postpictorial where the elements involved are others where the paint seems not to be enough before the discoverer effort that aims to find the way to move her concerns to the work.

The space in Mercedes Lara is a recurring element, almost obsessively so; Its incessant movement makes it amazingly flexible to her eyes. Its observation, its treatment, its mere consideration will be almost unapproachable without looking upon another element, the time. Lara maintains an artistic process whose conclusion appears to be the demonstration of how the relativity of time and space is, for her, impossible to achieve without the light.
