Bijoux en situation …. Eva Burton – high level desiderata !

Eva Burton, plus que « bijoux en situation » je devrais dire « DESIDERATA en situation » !!!

graduate from  Escola Massana  in 2014
now at Idar-OberSTEIN  (MFA stud.)(Master in Fine Arts))

  »During this time I’ve been in Idar-Oberstein doing my MFA I have been researching different aspects of the concept of « play » in society and how it influences in building the personality of human beings.
I have sailed the deep seas of Freudian concepts, repeating inward the sound « Fort- daaa », understanding this as a magic spell capable of transforming that reality that distresses us into something pleasant. Play has the power to transform confusion and trauma into a situation of enjoyment and connection with ourselves. Play is a ritual that takes place in a sacred place, the magic circle, the backyard of our house, the playground. That magical corner is deeply connected to our unconscious and through its exploration we can get to know more ourselves and we can also find this source of inspiration for our daily lives. Play is an intermezzo in our routine, is an ornament that adds beauty and grace to our lives. Playing is a need, a function of living beings. . Into an imperfect world and into the confusion of life it brings us a temporary, limited perfection. »  (oct. 2016)

« Me gusta metaforizar mis experiencias, me gusta romantizar lo cotidiano, me gusta enaltecer los pequeños detalles.
 La palabra “petium” proviene del latín pecium o petium, que significa “trozo de algo roto o fragmento encontrado después de un naufragio”.
 Esta definición le abre paso a un paralelismo entre dos imágenes/escenarios:
 Una es en la orilla del mar frente a los restos de un naufragio expulsados por las aguas. La marea actuando como un motor de transformación, de limpieza, extrayendo de lo profundo aquello que estuvo perdido, olvidado.
 Y por otro lado mi realidad: la vorágine citadina, el consumo desmedido de los humanos que todo lo desechamos se convierte en un torbellino que va escupiendo los residuos de la sociedad. ¿Mi misión? Colectar esa escoria a manera de tesoros, como si fueran caracolas en la orilla; transformarlos, darles una segunda oportunidad, una nueva vida, reutilizar lo que la gente desecha para aportarle algo mío.
 El ambiente circundante me influye, los focos donde pongo  mi atención son diferentes en cada escenario, pero hay un denominador común: los detalles. ¿Por qué poner atención en ellos? Es la observación minuciosa la que nos permite detectarlos. Es esa sensibilidad la que nos permite capturar su esencia y entonces quizá… son los pequeños detalles los que le dan a la vida sostén, sabor, ¿ilusión…?
La mixtura es lo que me completa, quiero encontrar en los opuestos las conexiones y hacerlos dialogar, bailar, distanciar, acercar, jugar…
Mis piezas son como una pócima que combina muchos elementos provenientes de diversos puertos y rincones. Son collages, ensambles. Pero la morfología, la composición, los elementos no son independientes, hay una interacción, están interconectados entre sí a través de su forma, colores, manchas, texturas, líneas, distancias…Se crea un conglomerado donde esta multiplicidad tiene una relación y es la asociación de los elementos que definen un conjunto, a través de los cuales intento reflejar mi  propio mundo.
Castillos de chupetines, pedestales a la hora de la merienda. Columnas verdes, columnas blancas. Ruinas imaginarias. Curvas moderadas. Aristas afiladas. Soles amarillos y soles rosas.
 En mis piezas todo aquello que parece disparatado es posible… Mi manera de componer está asentada en bases lúdicas, instintivas. Voy oliendo los colores y los elementos de un paisaje hogareño… Busco, en definitiva, sentirme como en casa… »

« I take great pleasure in transforming my experiences into metaphors, adding a romantic view to those slight details that take place in our daily life.
The word “petium” comes from Latin meaning “a piece of something broken or a fragment found after a shipwreck « .
This definition gives way to a parallelism between two images / scenes:
By one side, on the shore of the sea the rests of a shipwreck are revealed by the water. The tide acting as a transformation engine, cleaning, drawing from the deep what had been lost, forgotten.
On the other hand my reality: the vortex of the city, the excessive consumerism of humankind, a tornado of discard that spits out the remains of society.  Which is my mission? To collect these drags as treasures, like shells on the shore. And then transform them, give them a second chance, a new life, reuse what someone considered worthless and leave in it a trace of myself.
The atmosphere of the surrounding affects me, the focus of my attention differs in every setting, but there is a common denominator: The details. Why to put attention to them?  It is the meticulous observation that lets us detect them. It is these sensibilities that allows us to capture their essence and then maybe…are the little details that give us support, taste ….hope …?
The mixture is what fills me.  I want to find the connections in the opposites and make them engage in a dialogue. Make them dance, grow apart, get close, play. My pieces are like a concoction that combines various elements, coming from diverse harbors and corners. They are collages, assemblages. But in the composition the elements are not independent. There is an interaction, they are interconnected through their shape, colour, stains, textures, lines, distances…A conglomeration is created where this multiplicity has a relation and it is the conjunction of the elements that defines a whole, through which I intend to reflect my own world.
Lollypops castles, lemon balustrades. Green columns , white columns. An imaginary ruin. Moderate curves. Sharp edges. Yellow suns and pink suns.
In my pieces everything that seems nonsense it is possible. My way of composing is seated in playful, instinctual bases. I go around smelling the colours and the elements of a homely landscape … Seeking for the “welcome home” feeling… »  (Eva Burton blog)
