Beyond ART: Artist Talk with Beatriz Mayorca

Beatriz Mayorca's Artist Statement:

As a fine artist, interior designer and maker, my artwork moves between sculptures and functional artistic pieces—which focuses on a modern and contemporary mood, but also, influences from cultures around the world. This is reached by combining the warm feeling of wood, with the coldness of industrial media, like concrete and metal, and a splash of alternative materials. 

My constant sketches and creations are the result of an intensive and calculative process. Their conception took place in the application of architectural and design elements, based in the essence of geometric figures, which brings about memories of pleasant moments and playful sensations. 

As a fine artist, I have been developing three collections. ‘The Lines Collections,' which uses, as the main procedure, the plywood lamination and bending techniques with the intention to explore and challenge its boundaries through diverse three dimensional expressions, but always with the aim to captivate the viewer by the repetition of the veneer’s lines depicted. 'The Playfulness Collection,' is where bright colors, playful concepts, and designs are complemented by the use of concrete as the main material. And the 'Latin Collection' where I use more traditional forms and concepts which inadvertently tethers me to my cultural roots.
