Ana H. del Amo
Ana H. del Amo’s research (Cáceres, 1977) through form focuses on expressing herself through color, line and materials, giving rise to pieces of an abstract nature of various formalizations; between intuitive geometry and gestures, created through relationships and dialogues with materials. The work process is not at all orthodox, for this reason the method used varies depending on the characteristics of each material and the context. It is through play and dialogue that the works are resolved, sometimes using the gestures of the incorporation of color and in others respecting the characteristics or scars of the materials and objects. Each piece offers us one possibility out of a thousand, and this is where the creator puts the whole purpose of it. Solved in a subtle way, where the play of possibilities is present, in the processes. Bright colors, even fluorescent, shapes that refuse to be enclosed and even less classified. Forms with a refined appearance, where we can appreciate details or errors of the pulse of the action of creating.
