Venezuelan architect, goldsmith and sculptor, Luz María Charlita, presents her latest show, “Nature Redepicted” at Gallery G & S Alternative Space in Hollywood, during the next edition of Downtown Hollywood ArtWalk next Saturday April 18th.
Known for her metalwork interpreting the perfection of nature forms, Luz María Charlita returns to South Florida with this exhibition where the “Ecologic Rains: Green Rains” and Flower Rains” are focal point of this proposal.
Charlita began practicing his career as an architect in 1979, but it was her passion for detail that led her to specialize in interior design and go to work in Spain. There she began to connect with the metal work and goldsmith. As she returned to Venezuela she was devoted to manual work choosing as her material, metal intervened by fire. To these early works she added natural unworked stones like quartz and ammonites (mollusk fossils). Then she began with semiprecious stones and more elaborate pieces resulting in a collection of fine jewelry.
“There comes a time when you realize your jewel becomes larger and has the potential to be a three-dimensional project. This can be a sculpture, a painting, a piece in three dimensions, ” says Charlita. And then is when she takes the next step: metal sculpture Luz Maria also confesses not being afraid of the scale because she worked as an architect. “I had to design from buildings to utilitarian objects”
The Perfect Forms of Nature as a Source of Inspiration
The artistic work of Luz María Charlotte, has evolved not only in relation to the scale and materials but also the forms it represents. She went through an exploratory stage, from the origin of live beings, their forms, their designs and the search for perfection in natural forms such as snail, considered by her, a perfect structure.
She started working spirals and mazes as archaic forms. “The spiral works on its own axis, is progressive, it’s like DNA. It has upward movement and that inner strength of a tornado’s vortex ” she explains. She is also admits being fascinated by the geometry of the labyrinths and mystery it represents.
Metal is her greatest ally. She considers it a very noble material, becoming a truly fascinating element when it is intervened by fire. “Fire is my ally. The experience of working metal under flames at night is unique, especially working with copper. It shows colors almost like a rainbow. It’s almost supernatural “.
Charlita’s work goes from the original trace of the beings on earth through fossil, to more complex forms. In this second stage, she begins to interpret nature in its vegetation form resulting in her “Ecologic Rains: Flower Rains and Green Rains”. “I went from working fossils to designing a flower, but not the flower per se, but the flower inside a rain. It was a repetition work I wanted to do as an installation”.
Luz María returns with her work to Miami because she believes that the city will soon become an important point in the US, thanks to the confluence of cultures and young people that gives movement to the city. “Miami is a city with an impressive artistic thrust. There are a multitude of cultural events. It is already attracting many people, not just summer tourists, also cultural ones, ” she said.
