Paleta madre
Project
2016—July
This work depicts the possible relationship between the procedures of a painter and a baker. The painter discovers, in the bacteria of his dry recipients as well as in his old cleaning tissues, the origin of a personal color palette. The baker produces his bread from a mother mass or sourdough that gives it a unique flavor and consistency. Both of them seem to be nourishing their practice with almost invisible microorganisms which appear over a slow and silent daily routine. This is shown with a series of paintings, objects and a fictional story which invites the spectator to associate colors, textures, forms and elements of two, at first glance, very different crafts.

Collective exhibition En Medio, curated by Valentina Gutiérrez, Espacio El Dorado.
