THE SUBLIME MOMENT
Isabel Alonso Vega
Isabel Alonso’s work unfolds in its spellbinding black and red colours always seeking subtlety and lightness. Her pieces have a strong evocative power that plays with the ethereal and the intangible, with the sensation of levitating, the suspension of the object and the paradox of stopping time in an instant that is encapsulated between layers of methacrylate.
With meticulous and delicate work, with dedication and devotion, Isabel seeks to convey a complex and formless idea that alludes to mystical thought. To a large extent, this purpose of material representation is connected to the theory of knowledge and the approach to divinity developed by Pseudo Dionisio Areopagita, a theologian and philosopher who lived between the 5th and 6th centuries AD. This theory suggests that the greater the approach to the ineffable, the lower the degree of concretion that one can have. The sublimation of perception leads to a lack of resources, material and human, to describe and transmit that understanding.
