NOISE IN THE MIND/ EXHIBITION
Mural, Drawing, Sketchbooks & Jewellery under the same design concept.
“Lines, dots, strokes, forms… "
Where do they come from? Where do they go? Do they have a meaning? Should they have it? Perhaps they come out of nowhere, out of nothing; but from the nothingness nothing can come and, if something could emerge from it then it would not be nothing, but something.”
The architect and visual artist Rocio Soto reflects on the interpretation of her work, which will be exhibited from April to the end of June at the City Museum under the title “Ruido en la mente “ (Noise in the mind) with the support of the Instituto Queretano para la Cultura y las Artes (Queretaro´s Institute for Culture and Arts).
Iván Véliz says: “Through her hand, the artist´s mind expresses without words. A moment of clarity freezes on paper and, with strokes, [the artist] reveals her feelings, unveils her thoughts and emotions. It is a spontaneous manifestation, honest and without pretentions, of an extraordinary instrument that all of us have but that none of us knows. There is nothing to obtain, nothing to avoid, no one to please, nowhere to go… it is only the noise in the artist´s mind that emerges free, transformed in abstract and unforeseen textures. This exhibition, unescapably, leads us to a reflection that makes us wonder: What is the noise in my mind like?
Architect, relentless designer of objects and spaces of any scale, sketcher and happy experimenter, Rocio Soto enjoys sharing her way of seeing the world with others and, in this manner, transports us to parallel worlds.
During the last year her drawings have increase in size, moving from the sketchbooks to larger formats, invading not only paper but also furniture and walls with monochromatic and abstract textures. Proof of that is this first individual exhibition where the main object is a 25m2 mural as well as two series of drawings, sketchbooks showing the process of the textures and some pieces of brass jewellery.
Currently she looks for the involvement in experimental projects including architecture, furniture, jewelry design and drawing under the same design line.
