Zulma Vega Art
My work deals with the need of giving importance to the connection we have with those around us, with those that left us, and/or those that lived before us and contributed with their lives for us to be present: to be here. I begin by browsing family images, photographs that remind me of a special moment. I plan every layer by reconstruction these images incorporating elements that strengthen this memory: organic shapes, colors, remembrance thoughts. The work results in layers of these elements including geometric shapes and abstract representation of loved ones that come together in a complex, yet rich, visual environment. These rich environments represent either my perception of this moment/person or the longing of how I would like it to be. I seek through this process to have a personal transformation, to get to know myself better through the visual studies of those that surround me, my family, and ancestors.
