The exhibition includes paintings and drawings made in combined technique (acrylic, ink, charcoal, pastel) where abstract display of figures, that are presented in fragments, prevails. The essence of the use of artistic elements and forms lies in the constant reconsideration of visual problems, where something always remains undetermined and unfinished, something that encourages the renewal of the question without looking for a definite answer. WE Transparent is seeking the answer for the relationship between our being and itself and our being and the others. It represents the limits of those relationships as tenuous, ruinous and barely present, woven by fears, illusions and frustrations of the present. The perception of the work is a unique experiment of elements, which are not a final solution, but a product of exploration of the relations between the artist and the observer.
