Alfonso Artiaco gallery is pleased to announce the opening of recent works by Vicky Civera at the gallery, on Thursday 30th of May 2019, at 7.30 pm, the artist will be present.
For her second show at Alfonso Artiaco gallery, Victoria Civera presents a body of works that well represent the variety of her production. The four rooms dedicated to her, host an interesting mix of two sculptures, eight paintings (two small, five medium and one large) and one video.
The diversity of the medium used by the artist, represents her will, to not be immediately recognizable with a unique style and language. Nevertheless, there are key recurrent themes that could be traced throughout her practise. First of all, all the thematic are investigated with a highly feminine point of view.
We can find a kind of 'discordance' in the way she employs collage, juxtaposition and encounter between dissonant materials. With time there has been an incredible increase of material repertoire brought into her work. A wide range of fabrics, plastics, plaster, leather and objects of all shapes and sizes, chosen both for their physical qualities, and for the whole poetic allusion, open up when interpreting of her work.
Discordance can also be detected in her installations, where she mixes the industrial and manufactured or radically changing the scale, enlarging a small model to enormous proportions. By situating herself or her characters in this imprecise area between the known and unknown, she manages to create important points of tension where our focus will be driven.
