NATALIA AROS

 

My work process assimilates the Stream of Consciousness technique. I operate directly onto the base support with the idea of scheme and draft as artwork itself. I don’t use previous planning of any kind to determine the final image configuration. The result is a sort of collage composition where techniques and strategies of drawing, painting and printing organize and merge, conceiving relational nodes of connection and dissolution through the enhancement of the Urban Art theme. Therefore, after an intimate monologue, the image emerges and reveals among anthropomorphic figures, thick brushstrokes, quick elemental streaks, dramatic stains, graphical characters and symbolic forms.

 

In this way, my research embodies the fragmentary nature of thinking before being organized, and uplifts emotional experiences while they occur in a conscious and unconscious manner, the purpose is to represent “unpolished” feelings throughout a creative process, strongly influenced by Psychoplastic and Art Therapy Studies. This is my approach for representing how I think the creation of artwork: as a continuous experimentation and learning process, where the making, the unmaking and the remaking are part of a unitary internal discussion that resolves itself while its being built free of prejudice or preconceptions, and that decodes when the complete final image uprises from the deepest site of being.
