    • I work on the limits, the tensions and the fragilities of the contemporary society. It concerns me the point or the moment where elements, individuals or situations confront to each other and they have to deal what is the position to take to be in harmony, or emphasize the friction between them. It is in this point where fragility becomes a beautiful force to itself to create a new scope for the achievement. Inside these fissures I find the main ideas of my work. I take these frictions carefully and thought about them from distance, where the vulnerability is susceptible of being penetrated and transformed in powerful by the form of an artpiece. I concentrate on the material or the substance in its natural state; the reflex in the raw, still not treated or purified material, and I transmute it into a creative form. The main idea of my work is to show these concepts as strong qualities which transform the differences or resistances inside these relations into skills of growing in one and in the collective knowledge. For what I look essentially is to transform the invisible thing; the emotions, the thoughts, the feelings and the vibrations into symbols, objects, sounds and images or a composition of them.

    • I express myself through single-channel video, video installation, and video combined with art. These are empathetic tools that help me better reflect circumstances that are otherwise hard to assimilate or understand, sometimes due to our own ignorance about ourselves, given the little interest we have in introspection or, simply, due to the fear of knowing how we actually are in our most intimate beings. In my case my work has always centred on video, videointalations, photo, drawings, boxes and objects which for me reflect more easily those sensations or feelings which are dificult to assimilate or undenstand because of our own ignorance or lack of experience. My idea is to continue working on artistics projects with this philosophy in mind and make the public feel those rich, pure sensations and help them reflect on their own emotional situation. Love, but also fear, pleasure, anguish, happiness, anxiety and doubt, among other emotions, all make up part of my work. I hope in some way to de-dramatize the situations and eliminate their aggressive tone, so that the viewer doesn't feel them directly, but rather reflects and understands their meaning, the reason for their existence.

    • I think that… Art ... is intimate, sincere. Art which moves me, makes shake me and which makes shake you, which contains emotions and feelings ... that's what makes vibrate me when I paint and when I ´m back-front of the camera. Art ... which hides my vital need, my way of being, of behaving ... a way of life. I´m interested in the art which i can feel more than the art which is thought and this's what I try to express with "my art". I like to tell stories, describe situations either through video or colors in my hands; discern feelings of different experiences in my life, so many emotions! ... My art is more sensual than intellectual, in the most authentic and pure definition of "sensual". In my paintings and illustrations you can see influences from various styles like impressionist painting, art brut, pop art, naive painting, shamanic art, rock art, street art ... In my videos: Corporeal Identity. I consider that the most important is talent specific to each person which expressing through different techniques and different formats on their personal experiences. I´m influenced and identified in the painting with artists as Henri Rousseau(“Woman Walking in Exotic Forest”),Vincent Van Gogh(“La noche estrellada”, “Des sterrennacht”),Edvard Munch(“Moonlight”), Auguste Herbin(“Bailleux II”),Vilmos Huszár(“Vincent”), Max Ernst(“Paysage avec lune”),Victor Brauner(“Gemini”), Karel Appel(“Grito de libertad”),Yayoi Kusama, Sue Williams(“Portrait Of The Artist As A Young Woman”), Jean Michel Basquiat(“Carbon/ Oxygen”),Rigo 23 … In video artists as Marina Abramovic, Dan Graham, Doug Aitken, Gary Hill, Robert Cahen, Peter Campus, Clearbout, Candice Breitz, Tony Oursler, Aernout Mik … And finally in dance Laban, Carolyn Carlson, Pina Bausch, Mª José Ribot… www.carmenesplaespejo.blogspot.com

    • If art is a language to express myself, then inspiration ought to be the very life in which I am. And societal issues troubling me every so often, and sometimes my own dilemmas… Lies in the foundation of all a moral and humanitarian urge to question, shaped by one’s own ideologies. Indubitably to me, starting off with strong concepts devoid of mass-market meretriciousness, putting them in a story line and choosing the right material to ensure a firm expression make up the indispensable principles. I maintain that an artist, and naturally his work, can not be deprived of a reflection of his ideology. In a sense, your ideology is a prime source of your stance in life.

    • Art is a set of images, metaphors and symbols, that reflect the political, social, economic and cultural development of society at a given time and space. The artist, as an observer, collector and producer, transforms this information to build bridges of dialogue between the outside and its receptor, the public. The loss of sociocultural identity, interpersonal relationships and interaction with the ecosystem, are the motivation behind the work of this artist. Her concern for recovering individual and collective memory takes her to investigate the myths and traditions of various cultures and eras. It is through play, sensory language and physical memory and the creation of images and oniric spaces, how Ana gets close to her real objective: the audience.

    • I am interested in working with the structural elements of painting to create an image that extends beyond the limits of picture. I use the wall as a large canvas extending the limits of the painting outside the frame. The painting in this way makes the viewer see the wall as a part of it.

    • I see a work of art as a kind of dream, a matter, which in its silent vagueness conveys what sometimes clear conceptual thinking cannot communicate and is otherwise inexpressible. Paradoxically the most important think in a visual work of art – its spirit – is actually invisible. I always need to get involved emotionally and mentally with a subject in order to start exploring it through the means of art. Usually such involvement results in a series of works that often evolve through the years. However the things I am interested in are the idea, the principle, the type, and the relationship between man and environment. In this sense, even when I paint concrete objects, I am an abstract artist, as far as “to abstract” means to remove or subsume concrete details with the purpose of reaching a more general idea.

    • My procedure is somewhat philosophical, if this term can be used to mean the pursuit of knowledge, of getting to know oneself and the world. My videos refer to art history, to classic genres of landscape and still life, a sense of cyclical inevitability of life prevails. My videos since 2002 have consisted of short visual metaphors, brief reflections of thought which the image is the interpreter of. For some years the still life built in studio is linked to the ancient painting. This genre was used to better express the concept of Vanitas. So in my video still lifes the genre revive through the time factor and the movement which intensify this same concept expressing uncertainty, uneasiness due to precarity and continuing evolution of change conflicting the illusory aspiration to the status quo.

    • The fragmentation and reconstruction of the architectural place, it is done by means of photographic succession of photograms. This project is focused on the uninhabited aechitectural space, all of them forgotten for the society. It is compound for photographical reconstructions and sculptoric reconstructions, in which the photogram is used as a formal tool.

    • I believe that seeing comes before words, my purpose has always been to share the way I see. My main theme is in creating strong and dramatic abstract images that I call 'Menacing Abstractions" because of their dark and mysterious nature. I use a camera as an artistic medium and a tool for experimentation. Lately being inspired by my images, I began to paint in acrylics, which has led to a new way of experimentation with this medium. Rather than recreating my photographs on canvas, I aim to express their essence in order to capture their power. .

    • Experimental films by Geert Wachtelaer are mostly focused on forming and researching of layered inner sates, forces that may build up different tensions between the subjects. Visual identity given to the strong and deep interpretations of the performers creates a cohesion with the sound that is a very important part of it. Observing transition of states and forms, exploring the relationships of matter and the inner content, in his films, Geert Wachtelaer often refers to the human conciousness and its paths, showing a "life" outside of contexts familiar to us, also visually portraying the alienation and the dark, even disturbing, from a psychologically more difficult points of view. There is always a reaction represented by persons, making it realistic in relation for the viewer, which is only a part of the appearance, but the substance rather stays covert behind the streaming of movements and ambiences that offer, through an unusual way, the key of the hidden.
