MY ART

PHASES

CRAFT PHASE

Highlights and Metals with a magic symbolism of our Pre-Colombian roots, are present in each of the art pieces of this phase. It is the equivalent to travel in history. During the Craft Phase I apply all my creative concepts learned during my studies and visits to traditional tapestry classes in Colombia. It also combines unique techniques of my own along with some of Colombia's most popular materials and tendencies.

KNOTS AND TAPESTRIES

The second phase, know as tapestries and knots, starts with a strong interest for weave structure. Surfaces start to present distant areas, very loose while they become more complex by the techniques used with the knots and the materials combined.

BAROQUE PHASE

The third phase is defined as baroque, and is characterized by the texture give to the tapestries, where I start creating textile sculptures. The color of my art work, changes notoriously, where earth colors become the most important ones. I also start using precious and semi-precious metals with explicit details, and textures as one of the most important aspect of my artwork. A very positive experimentation.

PHASES

METALLIC PHASE

With the metallic phase I conquer a new vocabulary in weaving. A great advance with new techniques, a road to abstract, and a change in the art of tapestries. This phases constitutes a summary or synthesis of my previous four phases, where metals predominate as a stronger search for our Pre-Colombian ancestors, and vestiges of the past.

FACES FROM THE PAST

In this series called Faces of the Past, Pilar shares her work with metals, using the traditional "Quimbaya, Caribe or Muisca tendencies, which are filled with many circular signs and sculpted into the materials. This structures act as frames for black and white handmade images of south American Indians. Each work is filled with universal symbols such as spirals and ovals.

KIMONOS

This phase shows a combination of techniques inspired by the traditional Japanese dress, The Kimono. Each project is unique and amazing, confirming that Pilar is not only a phenomenal artist but she is also unpredictable.

EMBROIDED/SUBLIMATION

This new phase exhibits a totally unexpected technique, where she combines embroidery and sublimation as well as she opens herself to collaborate with other artists as well.

MINIMALISM

In this phase, Pilar goes even further from abstraction by taking shapes and colors to the maximum simplicity. She reduces to the very essential, and simplifies clear concepts.
