Natalia Carrus (b. 1968, Buenos Aires)
I am particularly sensitive to the current news of the world, which is my primary source of inspiration, and especially how we absorb the enormous mass of information we are bombarded without any restraint. This visual information neighborhood, changed our perception of reality.
I am a portraitist and I focus my artistic work on persons and animals I place in waiting position, sometimes critical, sometimes poetic. I use metaphors to exalt the alteration of our perception, and focus on the ambiguity of information dissemination to create small realities I mix as a puzzle, constantly evolving.
I adapt the material on the subject to create my pieces, and use various kinds as clay, stone, wood, iron,resin and even fund material and I put colors on my sculptures, a remnant of my classical education made of meetings and collaborations with artists like Mimmo Rotella who taught me to use intelligible symbols and be attached to an immediacy of illustration.
