This artwork is in a series of paintings-installations where the artist faces a profound personal research regarding the technique and materials used, which is related to an extreme universal theme such as diversity and union.
There are incalculable shades of skin and pupils, whose expertise and experiences bring with them a transcendence resulting in infinite colour combinations.
From this starting point the invitation comes to look at the world and people with new eyes, with an open vision that includes the fact that we are all part of the same species, the human one.
This invitation to brotherhood and sisterhood resonates because, as Pink Floyd sang, "Together we stand, divided we fall".
What can oil painting and CNC machinery have in common? Or the satin ribbon with bronze shavings and ceramic?
The components of the installations seem to have arrived from completely different planets, they are certainly very distant worlds, but here they coexist in harmony, finding a balance.
The same balance that Peska has sought and found, bringing together all the disciplines that have accompanied her artistic evolution up until this moment; as in a collage, the components of the works are part of her personal story, that as a child she wanted to be a photographer, as a pre-adolescent she fell in love with oil painting, she attended the art institute specializing in textile art, she specialized in a course as a restoration technician, she discovered ceramics and in the meantime has been working in the family metalworking company cutting iron.
This is how a classic canvas welcomes clay parts and fabric ribbons, accompanied by resin and scraps of ferrous materials recycled from the factory.
Some parts are pierced and present wounds, there are iron wires that cage or pass through the works, and screws, washers and nuts have been inserted, with the awareness that the possibilities of union and integration of the materials are incalculable.
In conclusion, it is precisely thanks to their characteristics and diversity that a unique work of art is proposed, exactly as each one of us is.
