about the work
[mosses] is a subtle conversation of elements.
A contrasting dialogue of emptiness and broken dryness is presented against a proposal full of life and humidity with tones so organic and earthy that they produce an unconscious approach to the viewer. He feels identified with the sensation of home produced by the perception of natural elements so close and present in his memory that he can freely dive into their exploration, entering a state of serene contemplation, linking each time with a memory or sensation that permeates everything. Being. The continuous movement of the fluid forms in contrast to the stillness and rest that the balance of forms manifests also contrasts with the presence of emptiness in the face of the overabundance of information in textures and details.
Working on the singularity of minimal perception in relation to Marcel Duchamp's infralight concept, the subject of his doctoral thesis, which refers to the beauty of the unnoticed, either for being of a slight, fragile or imperceptible presence, or for being of an absent presence, that is, it manifests from an indication or trace that reveals something previous and not physically perceived. Focused on the manifest grandeur (opus magnum) of extreme tenuity (suma tenuitas), Plinio's original expression, Elisa seeks to highlight the beauty of the unnoticed, such as the subtle shine of a sand glass or the color created by dust accumulation. , but also of the absent presence that reveals the history of the cracks and the broken ones in the painting.
The crystallized painting of experimental technique provides a richness of delicate textures that require the attentive contemplation of the viewer. If already from Malevich the height of delicacy was reached, stripping painting from the reduction of white on white, the infralight perception that Elisa proposes is to highlight the small insignificant flashes that make singular the overwhelming emptiness of white, of the desert disturbing, of the infinite sand.
In the void lies the pure possibility and, in this apparent nothingness, it is worth highlighting the beauty of the minimal perception of the imperceptible.
