Amarillo chapado en oro

Amarillo chapado en oro

Santuariio amarillo series on paper, New York, 2020

There is no acrylic painting on this series: first time that I decided to not use this medium.

I am always looking for a new way to use and combine color tapes. 

It allows me to go towards a more minimalist work, almost intimate as there are few forms represented.

This is quite new for me: how contain my desire to go into more details but keeping it simple but complex :)

About the theme of "gold plating"

In my artistic exploration of gold plating, I utilize abstract painting techniques and yellow tapes to evoke the concept of layering and transformation.

To represent the process of covering jewelry with a layer of gold, I create
abstract shapes and patterns on paper using acrylic paints in various shades.

These abstract paintings serve as the base layer, symbolizing the underlying metal substrate of the jewelry.  

Next, I incorporate yellow tapes to mimic the layer of 14-karat gold applied during the plating process.

The various types of tapes are carefully cut and arranged on top of the abstract paintings, creating geometric shapes and lines that overlay the colorful background.

This layering technique simulates the transformation of the base metal
into a more visually appealing and durable surface, similar to the effect achieved through gold plating.

By combining abstract painting and yellow tape, I aim to convey the idea
of enhancement and refinement inherent in the gold plating process.

The juxtaposition of vibrant colors and metallic accents creates a visually engaging composition that invites viewers to contemplate the interplay between materials and textures.

Ultimately, my artwork seeks to capture the essence of gold plating as
a technique that elevates ordinary objects into objects of beauty and value
by applying a precious metal layer.
