THE LANGUAGE OF WATERS
Watercolor, Water and Its Representativity
According to German poet Friedrich Schiller in his “Letters on the Aesthetic Education of Man”, the true artist can give form to nature, placing it at his disposal – as he separates matter from form, its exterior may even attract it. However, the true artist “plays” with matter, elevating its existence while keeping it alongside Beauty.
Waters speak for themselves and, through art, artist Patrícia Carparelli uses watercolor to reveal something intimate of which she hadn’t been aware. She develops relationships with color, with the background, with the proper water blending, with the layers of fabric, with time as materialized into the drawing’s gesturality. Throughout the painting process, Patricia finds this world and fills its void with the representation of water and its fluidity. She brings to the surface something from her subconsciousness, from her experiences, her sensations and whatever makes sense within the design of this great watercolor – the immateriality which has once been there sometime in the past, present and future has been performed and materialized. We’ve entered an era in which the spirit cannot be reckoned without art, and the soul cannot be considered without feeling. Feeling provides us with a sense of proportion, validating what we’d assumed to be true – through her work, the artist materializes this process, granting us with this feel. It’s through form that the artist provides expression to the laws of the spiritual world, imprinting onto matter the form in which matter itself wishes to be employed”. Patrícia Carparelli employs 120 yards of painted fabric in this site specific – ideas from a playful universe, from a play on reality –, and while occupying the gallery’s floor space with color, shape and movement, she invites us to barge into this realm of sensations.
