Alicia Torres. Valencia, 1993

The pieces that I create are based on the field of sculpture and installation, solving questions of a spatial nature. The work investigates the chemical reaction produced by the mixture of gold leaf and acrylic resin, resulting in pieces that are characterised by their transparency, malleability, blue and green tones. Therefore, it allows me to vary their shape to adapt them to the space where they are exhibited, sometimes outdoors where they wave together with the architecture in a practice that converges both aesthetic languages. The installation of those pieces aim to generate an immersive experience that makes the spectator re-think about the concept of field and its spatiality through the experience of feeling the movement and sound. The resin and its liquidity creates a rhythm in the space to feel involved in the track of a plastic-environment. It is a practice of coexisting and dealing with the dialogue generated between pieces, space and spectator.
