about Isabela Puga
Caracas, (Venezuela), 1997
Isabela Puga lives and works in Madrid. Graduated in Fine Arts at the University of Barcelona with an honourable mention in the Final Degree Project: Cracks in space; she starts her pictorial research process through the material and its perception. The black colour fields and gold leaf surfaces are established as the main and recognizable materials of her work. Later she moved to Madrid, where she studied for a Master's degree in Art Market and Business Management and continued the development of her artistic work. During this last stage, her interest in architecture and urbanism increased, being both disciplines an important part of her creative process and leading her work towards a geometric style. From opposites: the brightness of gold and the darkness of black, the artist questions and investigates in her work basic elements such as depth, colour, light and space, is her intention to promote the relationship between subject-object-space. That is to say, the work necessarily requires a viewer to observe it and explore its perspectives and superimpositions of plans, revisiting a more elemental/minimalist language. Thus, Isabela Puga's pieces result in an analytical and "presentational" work, where the concepts of spatiality and contemplation are simultaneously exposed.
