Spatial constraints and deviations within the box


Img 1782   square

Comprising elements made from everyday materials and labour intensive processes to explore issues of worth and value Spatial constraints and deviations within the box is a site-specific installation created for ARCH Window Gallery by Spanish artist Naty Lopez-Holguin, whose work questions:

How do we see things? Are they still useful? disposable? obsolete? or worthless? How can material transformation be encouraged? or understood? Art critic, painter, novelist and poet John Berger once said that ‘we only see what we look at … and looking is an act of choice.” Naty says:

‘I am presenting these abstract objects for you to consider: Form, colour, materiality, placement and distance between them are very important to me. What matters here however, is whether you find it interesting enough to stop, and whether it instigates any associations and interpretations for you. So thank you for stopping and looking.’

Naty works from studio 23 at Art Space Portsmouth. Her practice focuses on material transformation, using the everyday to convey points of human experience, creating sculptures as both singular objects and multiple elements in installations.
