GIL MAIA

"All my work has in its base the image of a scene with no actors, in which several narratives coming from the unfolding of the memory (imagination) take place, influenced by the contemporary incentive and the consecutive re-interpretations of the reality.

 

I am currently developing a new work collection  - [DE]CONSTRUCTIONS - which concept lays on emphasising the idea that construction and deconstruction are part of the composing action inherent to the plastic, highlighting its consistency within the creative activity. There is no specific topic, but there is a dismantling of the motifs I am interested in for the different scenarios, composing in the pictorial space a blend of ilusions."
