about Mariana Álvarez

Badajoz, 1963

She understands art in this way, as an active social tool that can precipitate change. Art should show us the world as it is, and the artist should not shy away from those truths that surround him. Therefore, his pieces deal with harsh scenes from the everyday lives of people surviving scarcity and misery. Scenes that perhaps we imagine to be distant and therefore contemptible, but that in many cases are closer than we think.

As a good correspondent, Mariana starts with a previous documentation exercise, in many cases after coming into contact with the people or situations she is going to capture. With photography as a base, her pieces become a perfect exercise in aesthetic synthesis, combining very well the binomials realism-abstraction, beauty-crudity and delight-compromise.
