CRISTINA HUARTE

Spain 1988

All of these pieces combine to show the process of my personal research project. In these works, we can appreciate the faces distorting and disappearing in a melancholic way. They represent the death of life, that is characterized by a feeling of disintegration and absence of the self.

Their ugliness and shady nature makes them glow and reflects on our own lives, whith eyes fixed beyond the horizon, a dream that disembodies and disorganizes.

The use of black causes a reaction within us, leaving a fixed mark on us for good by the act itself, creating and indelible footprint.

In that perfect moment between silence and the rest, we are prisoners in an empty room where we approach the memories, they rot the days and lead to an exhausting end, we become futile sounds.

Nothing will make them disappear.
