“There is nothing in the mind without passing through the senses”
There are (and must be) as many ways to face art as persons that place themselves in front of a work of art. But, in this case, we can recommend that the right attitude to face this exposition is setting the senses above any rational judgement.
María Vera presents in the Malagenean gallery ColumnaJM and curated by Javier Bermúdez, a “Silent Light” that refers us to a stark nature, as much physically as emotionally, unloaded from ornaments and taken to an essence that is the first impression that the sensory perception leaves. The displayed pieces are arranged in a dynamic way which, along with the faint illumination, guide us through the path chosen by the artist, to submerge us in the world she tries to describe and makes us participants of the discovery that is given to us as we open our senses. This way, the emotional state that overwhelms us extends like a blanket over the logical analysis and lets the work permeate, the special illumination take us to a past world, and the nature present itself and be perceived as the basis of everything.
The room ColumnaJM in GaleríaJM is specially adequate for this perception, as thanks to its configuration and dimensions, it empowers de isolation that the work transmits, giving a sensation that the pieces themselves absorb the space and attract us irrevocably to them.
