Maria De, Fabio Horsfield
Tsantila Museum of art, Moscow, Russia
Maria De investigates the interplay of time and space, the now and the before, and the way we can relate to their perceptions. Another, equally important aspect of this work is the search for beauty in the world around; Maria De's objects are nails, lollypops and typewriters; the obvious material function of the syringes is re-interpreted and transformed to communicate a spiritual, intellectual and psychological message of art as dialogue and as cross-cultural interaction. This principle reveals purity in sensuality which never ceases to move us; the layers of time and place involved in the works of art presented engage the viewer in the complexity and awareness of the situation, the use of vivid colors, often primary, and of mirror effects playing on light to create the desired atmosphere. The statement remains obscure until the juxtaposition of all art works in a continuous collective revelation process, this consciousness prompts the artists to deal with the political, the geographical, and the everyday in a non-didactic way; our idea of culture is severely restricted because we've always applied it to art, just being in this place changes anyone's awareness, this poetic work is exemplary of Maria De eye for detail.
