LIQUID INSTANTS The colors of White By Jose Antonio de OrySo here we are, in front of the color without anything else, alone facing thecanvas full of acrylics in a way back to the origins, a trip to the seed, andalmost basic effort to understand for oneself, herself, what is going on withthe color, how they work, which are the chemical reactions that, when comingtogether, makes them contract, expand, displace, melt, separate, flow…AsGold expands in black, red contracts in white.But off course, that is not all, because White is an artist not a scientist. Colorchemical reaction research she states “ is a metaphor of relations amonghuman beings.” Her colors as individuals when they relate among each other,have a separate temperament and behavior and transform their nature whenthey interact. They attract, expand, contract, retreat, distance an flow withineach other..
Venuz White´s paintings area at the same time artist sketches, her navigationBinnacle, topographic maps of her travels around a continuously transformingnature, cardiograms of human emotions in contact with each other.Each piece of “ Liquid Instants” is being conceived as a chapter, as a photogram,as a movie still. White plays with the liquid flows to propose a reflection of thenotion of time as a transforming element. In her paintings there is a staticliquidity, where time stops but continues flowing within the imagination.It’s Venuz White who explains what se does “as an uncovered skin, thisbiologically suggestive texture, proposes a cartography, a voyage among theintimate internal space of the forms essence, of everything that exist with in andthat slowly reveals to the outside, as a fantastic nature in a chromatic energydischarge that suggest an almost musical rhythm”.
