Desiderium comprises a series of compositions in different formats which Lourdes Fisa has recently worked with mixed painting techniques.
The artist has given this title to the exhibition – meaning ‘desire’ – to express a yearning for change, aspirations and hope for a fairer world.
In her own words, “I’ve worked with overlapping, the layers and textures of materials, incision and grattage searching for harmony and equilibrium between antagonists, such as destruction and construction, fullness and emptiness, order and chaos. They’re like time pulses, and I’m interested in mankind’s stamp and the beat of their emotions. I start from here – desires, looking for new constructions.”
Felicitat rodona. Mixed technique on wood. 80cm diameter
Overlapping multiple layers of materials is triggered by a trace of memory, which she has captured through her symbolic imaginary and expressed with a personal graphic architecture, iconography and a unique technique.
Thanks to her talent to create colored atmospheres, her graceful lines and her experience in collage she can depict abstract concepts that belong to a rich and complex inner world full of feelings and emotions.
