Ría de los mecanismos

Silkscreen on fabric with digital prints. 2015 Edition of 3 $400

A few years ago I started to collect books with an interest in mechanical diagrams, technical drawings and mathematical beauty. The book: Ría de los mecanismos is a selection of 9 poems constructed from 9 pages of a book on mechanics. As its title suggests each poem inspired a rebellious, optimistic attitude that mocks the conventions, the impositions.

The book has digital reprints of 9 altered pages with screen printing of hand tools on the verso. These pages are placed inside a carrying case that could possibly store small tools.

 

Self Portrait 

Edition of 3.         2013   17.75 x 13″       $600

Self Portrait is an unassembled box screen printed on bristle board.

Each side is printed with an image of the artist’s face. On one side of the box Anyelmaidelin used cool colors and warm colors on the opposite side. Anyelmaidelin proposes the challenge of finishing the work by leaving a part of her visible or hidden. Only the final owner of this box will decide on the outside and the inside of her self-portrait.

This work is part of a series of books that I am elaborating using as support some books that my art students receive. In this case the work is a triptych composed of three variations of the same idea. It consists of the intervention of a book of Chemistry of the Cuban School. I have used images of a couple of students to whom I teach art classes, graffiti and allegorical texts to love chemistry. In this way I try to superimpose the spiritual empathy, typical of the youth ages, above the analysis and premeditation of science. With screen printing as a means of printing and color selection I intend to create a contrast between the precarious and monochromatic nature of the original design of this book and the graphic intervention. The repetition of the same representative pattern tries to suggest surreality as an act of insistence and voluntariness.
