Licia Salvatore

Venezuelan Sculpture


MY WORK IN WORDS

I ventured into the sculpture's world looking for a language that would allows me to communicate a whole range of deep concerns that came out slowly, elaborating the forms of my works in a free and individual way. It's a dual commitment which finishes with a three-dimensional variegated expression, full of my raison d'être. Balance is the main constant of all my composition because life is a research of equilibrium continuous in all its aspects, its components should be in armony and able to live together in the same place. The human being must be sensible to changes of the world and about diversity of the elements which should create an alliance with, between the opposites we can find a point where a coincidence exist and it's exactly here that the magic of the fusion between the stone, wood and forms happen.

The association between the stone and the wood involves special treatment of the expression of matter in physical space, as these two materials have their own language, they have their own limits that compared with creatives purpose they're going to set the moment and the way that this combination must obtain. The same must be done with rigid forms and sensual ones.

My work propose the union of matter's vision, form and void, where each materials and forms are associated in the composition and integrate themselves harmoniously and conceptually, without breaking with the aesthetic of embossed volumes. Rigid and geometric lines mixed with the organic and sensual nature come together in a dialogue that harmonizes and exalts the warmth of the rhythms as well as the void represents the space where the energy flow and happen the fusion between form and matter.

These rigid and sensual forms managed to melt a soft material with stone, combining them as if they were one, but at the same time maintaining the appearance that characterizes each one. They combine well themselves as a reflection and a harmonious, organic and elegant dialog. The works meet themselves at a point of equilibrium, they rise up moving in the space in every direction, they curving and bending gracefully toward the full and the void suggesting the binding of natural elements involved in the composition.

In every moment of the creative process I'm aware of what is happening and I do not care if I'm wrong, there is an absolute intuitive freedom, I move myself free and the only compromise that exists between me and the work is its essence and nothing else. Emotions flow draining the process and it's here that involuntarily shapes and spreads all that you feel, what you have to say, what is disturbing you or whatever makes you happy. I spiritualize it through the forms, flowing from a visionary subconscious.
