TERESA RIBA

 

When I finish my works of art, they already become a little part of this world. They are the ones who express themselves in which they relate to create new images, having different perspectives of interpretations, creating new spaces where the time stops and some things may happen. Everyone has their way of interpretation. This is the real miracle of art, to open up feelings by giving some wings and feeling alive.

 

SCULPTURE


Sculpture is the midpoint, where weight disappears in space, where matter and all its qualities are transformed into thoughts, emotions, experiences to give way to the air we breathe.

DRAWING


Drawing is the magical moment where you capture the gesture, the look, the moment that can be eternal while your gaze holds its own, while in that gesture you see its before and after.

PROCCES

I make little sketches of drawings or sculptures, on some occasions I am the only one who understands them. I capture the idea quickly, so that, later on I can start the work of art. I try to look for rhythms, little details, movements, emotions and above all glances, that transport me to the personality of the character.

SCULPTURE

 

As I take out material, I strip naked, as I get dirty letting the mud slide through my hands, as I delve into the texture, humidity, smells and effort, as I get carried away by her wisdom and merge with her, learn from her while I find myself, through the work of contact with matter. , I have learned to understand it, respect it, love it, it has given me wings, to let me fly..

Sculpture means work with hands, and it is the learning of masters, means dialogue with the nature and us.

Matter is my teacher, the laws of nature are my traps to overcome, their qualities are my allies, working with the earth, the stones, the wood, that I can do that they do not give me them. It is an ancestral work, a work with a lot of hours in touch with the best masters, materials, the gravity, the weights and the space.

They teach you, stop you, make you to take a risc, push you, atract you, guide you in paths, decisions, they give you rhytime and stpe by step, let you transform in your hands and change the form, the colours of textures, and give all its nobility, its strength is sometimes transformed with a subtle white cloud.

DRAWING

 

In the drawing, the look of the character, his gesture, subtle, sinuous, firm, trembling, serene;the dark tone of a shadow, the stroke that borders a cheek, the point of light inside the eye, the fast scratch, the lines that give rhythms that are confused and interweave that seem to meet and escape, the dirty whites that invade the space; the nerves that I go through, the struggles between form and expression, between what I think I want and what comes out, decisions, thoughts that come to me

My glances and yours
that are transformed and transformed;
the dialogue between lines,
the hands that draw and erase


Blank spaces, spaces of time where I look at him and look at me, where I see him and see me where I suddenly see myself without knowing it, where I feel thinking about being outside.

Moments where I stop fighting, the thought fades, moments where everything flows and it transports me.
Moments where the time stops because I am inside of now.
Moments where I connect in the drawing, inside, in universal knowledge that we all carry inside.

That’s when the lines come out and draw what it is, what we see, what we know without knowing it.
It then when it speaks and it teaches me that I really need and who I am without knowing it.

I
…sometimes I wonder, who did it.

The drawing is not what we see,
it is what we feel when we look at it

ELNA

Elna comes to life in front of those who look at her, she is the one who relates to the spectator, with space and with looks from other artistic disciplines.
