Statement
ROSALIA BERMÚDEZ was born in Montevideo, Uruguay and works in sculpture, photography, printmaking and installation incorporating a broad spectrum of processes and techniques. She lives and works in San Francisco and New York.


Conveying a sense of presence and absence is fundamental formal and conceptual premise my work in addressing issues of memory, identity, history, distance, time and place. These themes have always been central to the conceptualization of my work, functioning as the parameters for my artistic production. I am interested in the ways in which individual and collective experiences - stories and histories -intersect and overlap, the ways in which place defines identity and how distance and time alter our perceptions of place.

Since much of my work is conceptually-driven, I allow the idea to dictate the medium. This "medium is the message" approach allows me to navigate seamlessly between processes and materials in making connections between concept and content. Whether in sculpture, printmaking, drawing or photography, I work with serial imagery, creating multiple iterations of a single idea as I feel this affords the viewer (and the artist) a more thorough exploration of the work. I am interested in the sort of interplay that occurs between the viewer and the work, encouraging them to be both witness and participant, to interact with the work, to be curious, to be patient. I have found that the most compelling work is often the kind that doesn't give answers, but rather asks questions. It is this sort of resonance that I strive to achieve in my art.
