ABOUT THE EXHIBITION

#Inbetween


Exhibiting Artist:

Maria Maggiori

In this new body of work, I mean to deepen, from drawing, the physical aspect of repetition, delve into the limits of the contention-structure and the spatial relationship between both. Despite there being techniques that are more effective in terms of reproduction, to repeat infinitely as pattern and to draw, with the gesture of my hand, elements such as the line and the point, I find today an act at times subversive, rebellious or disturbing. In close relation with the techniques of engraving, printing and drawing practice, I become a human printer, facing the duality between the serial reproduction of a plot and the unique gesture of the hand guiding the brush, the savoir faire and the endless desire to draw. I insist on the boundaries between the image, the containment of the surface and the structure as an integral part of my work. The drawing takes up space, as well as its silences which become equally relevant in my work. #Inbetweenindicates that something or someone completely inhabits some point that separates two things or is located in the middle of them; it alludes to the physical place as well as to the time. The works gathered in this exhibit reveal the search to establish, from the drawing, relationships that are responsible for translating spatial perceptions into lines and exposing that intermediate stage of potentially unstable transition between the materials that make it up.   The drawings are fragmented, broken, tense, or dropped by their own weight.The line draws a boundary that separates and does not clarify whether it is beginning or end.The landscape emerges and is built to embrace the distance and the mountain emerges not as a simple naturalistic symbolism but reverses the perspective internalizing the outside world. This exhibition refers to positioning yourself from a certain place. The difficulty of being at the right distance, seeing and feeling involved.
