MUSIC: Porcupine Tree - Voyage 34 (The Complete Trip)
ARTIST: PALOMA MARQUEZ
The certainty of being all,
It is the texture of the monster.
They are the waters that liberate us,
that nourish us with certainty.
The lines make the body,
music makes the soul,
Marquez builds and moves,
Marquez shows body and energy.
Structures that are robots, deformed, slow, almost organic.
She creates dramatic stories with artifacts that are faced with a flexible, mutable humanity, sometimes lost and others with the force of countless hurricanes.
Their "Shared Circuits" are landscapes that reveal the identity of two very dissimilar worlds.
At a certain point, there exists in her work a complex amorphous mirror in constant reflection of virtue.
And if there is no virtue in the truth,
if again and again we are confronted with ourselves, her series "Waves" reminds us that there is hope and great strength in humanity, with careful half-toned people, and the odd idol of red.
And when we thought that we could not stand her meticulous and rigorous concentration, which resulted in heavy visual stains, she surprised us with her series "Cubes".
More relaxed lines, more human. This series is -The place- of the little people, of humanity. Although suffering constantly, the characters acquire a role, within its scale. They are more energetic, more playful, more vital.
The walls are soft, they are permeable.
The being enjoys.
The being is.
In "Tumult", humanity is not the same. Elongated, uneven, aliens.
They were victims of something that turned them into monsters without direction.
Trying to balance, to sustain, to build a structure and not a flow, as in "Hormiguero", "Waves" and "Daily".
Here the names of the works suggest a strong emotional moment, and a search during this process.
My favorite, The certainty of being all
it's the texture of the human monster
are the waters that liberate us from not flowing
that nourish us with the certainty that we are strong, we discover and fight, we cross paths and face everything.
Paloma Marquez skillfully reminds us of this.
