INVESTIGATE. June-Crespo and Marcel Duchamp.WHAT DO YOU SEE , IN YOUR MIND´S EYE?

WHAT DO YOU SEE , IN YOUR MIND´S EYE?

Sometimes I use some objects that I have done in the pass and I want to push them farther, DECOMPOSING AND REASSEMBLING, I usually do it when I think the piece is not worth to keep as a ‘final piece’ and I manipulate them or add new pieces and I make a new composition or a new sculpture, or even a new photo which can be the photo itself the `FINAL ´piece.It is about assemblages of different materials and the process of making which has something to do with construction and deconstruction, damage and repair In the process things happen without thinking but the intuition has to sit on the shoulder of the knowledge.

Spontaneous and random, not premeditated, making the object or sculpture without a pre-established composition, importance to forms, textures, stains, trying this way to express inner world. Not to be guided by traditional means of art, therefore, the piece of art is little expressive for needs and make a combination with accumulation of materials, including waste materials, running spills, drips, cuts or damage on the canvas.They disclaim conventional artistic patterns, both in regards to the plastic treatment and in the composition of the work. This is how Art brut was defined and is quite inspiring for my process of doing art. And some influences of informalism, Informalism is based on the Existentialism of postwar Europe, artists on multiple occasions not even use the brush but what they do is to scratch the thick surface, material, previously created with the new materials. Also, use the spatula to make spontaneous and disorderly lines denoting chaos, also making scratches, burns and grattage on canvases.  Therefore, what most characterizes this art is the large number of different materials and techniques that might be that they were taken on an occasion of Surrealism (operator), in others of Dadaism.

I am interested with the sculpture of June crespo, I haven’t read much about her but I will and I will write more about it later on, what I see in her sculptures is that she is using sometimes found objects combining them and sometimes it seems she re-work the found object and display in different ways there is some influence of Marcel Duchamp.

Actually I am thinking to visit factories and look for objects and materials , I Will create new sculptures from left materials, It Will be recycling objects, a little collaboration for this planet.

Dada was a philosophical and artistic movement of the early 20th century, practiced by a group of European writers, artists, and intellectuals in protest against what they saw as a senseless war—World War I. The Dadaists used absurdity as an offensive weapon against the ruling elite, whom they saw as contributing to the war.

But to its practitioners, Dada was not a movement, its artists not artists, and its art not art.

A bit research that links with the prototypes I am doing.The striking Art: named to the technique of the studs that account for amorphous surfaces without structure. Scratch that also come to form part and which are given as response to a spontaneous, intuitive action, informal product of vital or creative impulse of the artist, such is the case of the works of Hartung which has a lyrical approach,  achieved with the application on the grattage, but always in an intuitive manner, so that, with these tools the artist achieves a very dynamic pace in the compositions.
