UTOPIA IDEAL OF THE UNIVERSE
The agitated, twinkling lines are tangible messages of the metaphysical. Luz Helena´s artworks, residing far removed from abstract- language in perpetual and infinite movement, the air also abounds in atmospheric noises, understanding how she never stops measuring and evaluating the plasticity in our brain. Such images are more like abstract, passing images that occur as an optical phenomenon and that dissipate as soon as the moment has passed.
Color speaks deeply and loudly, expressing our raw feelings, our inner emotions, an open narrative in which individual interpretation starts with self-discovery in contrasting colors, it’s all a moving target of shapes, lines. On one hand, they’re very organic, on the other they’re highly artificial and synthetic. On the one hand, they’re very free in their making, on the other, hand they’re very constructive painting that can hammer that dual existence.
Transcending is the process a human being carries though out life searching for the essence of things when he worries about becoming a better human being, a spiritual person The message for the viewer is to find, on the front stage, some sort of prison bars which signifies all that is superficial and obstructs our path to become a better human being. Behind those bars, you find the light symbolizing to take.
