Marcela Jardón Art Studio

Marcela Jardón Art Studio

Location: Spain

My artistic practice is located at the intersection of drawing, photography, video, new media, installation, visual-poetry, artist’s books and research of the relationship between images and language as symbolic productions.
The exploration of hybrid forms, the vision and the production process spanning several disciplines and distances between past and present, the analogical and the digital.
In my projects incorporate texts as “repentismos graficos”, text fragments, quotations out of context from different sources, and original photography, and recreation of fragments of previous own works. Work using everyday images, rescuing preview images, simple objects, exploring the dark places of the unconscious, controversial concepts, and stories often hidden behind in what surrounds us.”
1988 Bachelor of Visual Arts. National Professor of Visual Arts. National School of Fine Arts Prilidiano Pueyrredón, Buenos Aires.

AERIAL LANDSCAPES
(Unconscious maps)

point of view> line of sight> landscape
Extensions (terrain) seen from a place determined by an observer also determined.
Aerial Landscapes is a series of images that evoke landscapes and places that are unknown but familiar. Landscapes that I fly over when I sleep. Landscapes that only exist in that dimension outside of time.
Starting from the limits of the landscape and the references to topographical representations, the work encourages the spectator to personalize these places through a fundamental instinct of recognizing and belonging.
They have an absence of realistic description, but they generate the sensation of being before something that is remotely recognized. I think it's because they connect us in a generic dimension. (common to the genre).

While I look at a piece of wall or another, in one or another street, I think about how behind one layer of paint there is another, and another, and another ...

The historical referents, the eternal referents, the known parameters, cracked, and are "peeling", letting glimpse what is behind.
At first, I felt a bit of vertigo. Although I thought I was facing another opportunity to change the point of view. Mutate the perception.
Accept the emptiness left by the torn, collapsed, inoperative, useless or obsolete structures.
And only then, is there room to intuit the new.

Behind the void left by the torn, collapsed, inoperative, useless or obsolete structures, I sense a new opportunity. A new life...

# 4529 “# 4529”

Behind what I see, I intuit as "layers" of possibilities ...

# 4539 “# 4539”

Behind the seemingly gray of the visible, there are colors ...
