Ephemeral / Efímera
Mabel's experience during the course of her residency in Djerassi, Woodside, California, USA resulted in the creation of the work ‘Around my own’.
In this work she is interested in relating the semantic potential of two symbols, widely expanded in universal culture: the spiral and the pyramid. This allows her to talk about the memory of the place and the different ways of personal development. That is why she uses the archetypal representation of the spiral as that path of growth and physical transformation, but also spiritual.
So ‘My Autumn’ reflects that path that has no limits, of constant growth and, in some way, infinite, it also represents it from the presence of pyramidal origami shapes. A structure whose sense of ascension resembles reaching heaven, connecting those two levels that exist in parallel, but inescapably intertwined: heaven and earth.
These works reflect how life can be a kind of spiral where it goes around in the same circle from each moment and moment. Autumn as a reflection of fading, simile to the season characterized by the shedding of the leaves of the trees into the air. Represented the fragility of life, the ephemeral and its instability. As a whole it can vanish and become nothing.
The defragmentation of bodies as a system of symbols that represent conceptions in individual moods and make up a whole. The flowing energy and spirituality of individuals.
The series continues with the constant search of the artist to represent the lightness of existence and her concern for the experiences of human beings.
