IN THE EDGE OF THE STRUCTURE
ANA PAIS OLIVEIRA, IVÁN BAIZÁN & RUBÉN FERNÁNDEZ CASTÓN
The work of Ana Pais Oliveira, Iván Baizán and Rubén Fernández Castón starts from a shared interest in geometry and its plastic translation. Although the recourse to this subject is common in contemporary art, these artists go beyond pure linear abstraction to explore proposals where volume and space, within the creative possibilities offered by the materials, present clear architectural reminiscences.
The construction of parallel realities, of alternative cartographies in which the imagination and the relationship of the individual with their environment find a new space for exploration, is the core idea that articulates the artistic narrative of these creators. It is about overcoming the limits that physical rules impose and, even, overcoming the restrictions that urban life establishes in an unconscious and routine way, boosted by the inertia of society itself. For this reason, the plastic mean serves as a shock therapy: painting, drawing and sculpture are developed in a set of materials that expand their boundaries and aspire to break traditional moulds.
