José Yisa

Chile
1984
Statement

Jose`s work articulate the power relationships experienced by the contemporaneous subject. They are exposed explicitly, in an irreverent way, providing a confusing message in the receptor.

His work maintains an interest for large formats and the use of materials affected by erosion, due to their exposition to the environment, as seen in his earlier work (specifically in site specific paints). Recently, influenced by different artistic trends, he made a change in his works, pointing at a more specific painting, joining other elements, such as oil, wood and stones. This change reflects his interest in conceptualizing and contextualizing new themes in his work: power, religion, violence and sex, as the objectification of power in the body or the objectification of the body through power.
