Like A Departure Point…


When one begins to make a weave, the development of the fiber begins from a point. In similar form to a ball of yarn, a cocoon, the creations of Irene grow from an epicenter. Their works have an axis from which they develop and they increase. For that reason they are tied to life or rather they emulate that vital growth that goes from inside to outside.

Centered in a convergence, these compositions are centripetal, because their parts join in organic forms, causing a full vision, which it is easy to enter into them selves and feel embraced as in a maternal breast. For that reason, we are caught and surrounded by them. We become part of a whirlpool that absorbs to us trough its colors, textures and outlines.

One does not theorize in front of this works, you sense them and enter in connection with something that has been in gestation and given birth with the force and tenderness of life. The primitive character where they have been carried and the visual vocabulary with which they speak to us, take us to very elementary experiences; they connect to us with our vital and simultaneously spiritual center.

Its impact is direct, as it is in the rhythms, sounds and elements of nature. Each one evokes the form into which the climate, geography, earth, water and wind are part of our life and our surroundings.

Irene transmits the sense of the vital and primordial. Her artist vocabulary put us in front of the ancestral, she grants us immediately with the fundamental and archaic.                                                                                                    Silvia Herrera Ubico/ 2008
