Mayet, Jorge b.1962 / Untitled
about this work
Jorge Mayet's sculptural representations of nature respond to a personal need to recreate a construct of the imagination that progressively conforms a body of memories - the artist's own memories. His small installations, far from trying to exhibit the contemplative beauty of landscapes as such, seek to evoke the experiences, emotions and feelings that are always attached to a particular landscape or geographical site. As a result, the newly created image acquires a further dimension which is in perpetual evolution; it is a fragment of a landscape that is created from a series of visible and non-visible elements stemming from nature, the psychological realm or even the religious beliefs of the artist’s ancestors. His sculptural pieces are not the mere addition of separate geographical elements, but are rather the result of combining physical, emotional and anthropological elements that are dialectically interwoven to create a new landscape; a unique and indissoluble piece with a rich symbolic and emotional universe of its own.
