    • 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 share the idea of an art that creates new reality instead of offering its conventional model. I want to provoke the birth of view that goes beyond the boundary of reality itself. Viewpoints which stress an order that exists "a priory" in nature and can be developed again and again… Aspect that makes the work to exist as a signal, giving the onlooker a chance to go deep into his/her life experience and mind. Universal signals to which the individual responds in a unique manner and creates his/her own reality.

    • 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

    • 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.

    • 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. .

    • I am interested in the symbiosis between the organic thing and the technological thing as source of inspiration that it communicates with the spiritual of the human desires. The video is for me the most natural way of expression though I don't leave of side other artistic aspects.

    • I am a multidisciplinary artist, who believes the most important thing being an artist is to have freedom of thinking. When I work, I try to understand the way, how we, the humans, perceive the world. How we interact with our surrounding environment. Based on this, my last works have been realized on way, representing the idea on many layers, arranged in multiple levels; from the shallow to the deepest, and which can be understood in many different ways.

    • During his studies at Sculpture studio of Jozef Jankovič, Sergio attended several sculpture exhibitions and symposiums. After completing his Masters in Oporto and returning to Slovakia, he switched to painting, drawing and collage. He combines disparate elements inserting objects into paintings (e.g. chips in 'Senhorita Batata Frita') or cut out pictures from the packaging and promotional items symbolizing the consumption. The chocolate boy has become a typical feature of Bacao. In several paintings resonate the topic of commercial culture and its criticism, as the author himself has said - we are surrounded by a commercial world which makes us very vulnerable (eg 'Vulnerability'). However, Sergio comments this world rather than directly criticizing it. His pictures are rather witty allusions to bind to the object of desire which can be a simple chocolate. The blond boy with a sweet smile in his face has become the logo of his works which he can cut out ten copies for one collage. Multiplication is the mean for propagation of commercial items and Sergio shows it now ironically. His smiles are a caricature of the 'american' smile and joy and parodies the material sufficiency. Irony does not abandon him even in other pictures when 'One for all and all for one' shows a whole family with the same face sitting in front of the TV that shows the one same face and on the right side a plant grows the one same face, or when a beauty of the Ads is shown as 'Meat'. Some works are much more personal and arose because of events that happened in Sergio's life. '3o tomate, 3.vajce, 3rd ball' is a game with different denominations of the male testes in various languages (Slovak, Portuguese and English) but it was painted due to an unpleasant disease personally experienced. 'Amor (Love)' – this painting might explain the cause of his staying in Slovakia: a slightly ironic diptych representing two deformed figures surrounded by a very hearted cardiac image. In the painting 'Seven years in Slovakia', the Slovak flag appears sewn to the Portuguese in which Sérgio's silhouette shines through. It is a symbolic image representing the two homes of Sergio. The sculptural objects are a return to the beginnings but dominant in the Sergio's production became the funny and ironic collage-comments to things around him and a collection of personal records. The exhibited is also a kind of playing with forms and experiments where the Sculptor is sometimes acting foolish but always through very refreshing creations.

    • Massive self & media created images make our bodies incorporate symbolic violence. These images are silent but saturate us through time. Nowadays, when the body and old institutions are falling apart; the age of accumulation is becoming omnipresent due to a virtual self-revolution by subjects and users of new technologies and media. The boundaries of the body are being pushed in a way that reality seems blurred and incomprehensible. Daniel Castellanos is a multimedia artist. He works with spirituality: reading and showing messages coming afloat; not in the media used but in the perversion of the matter. The way he does it is by intuition, humor and spiritual approach to everyday life. Some of the media he uses are Drawing, Photography, NEON signs Video and Video Installation (as a way to incorporate the human condition in to media) and others.

    • My work deals with the perception of being “present”. By developing our ability to focus our attention away from “thinking,” and direct it into the body instead (non-dualistic experience), we become fully conscious of being and are in the moment. So, I am interested in creating an experience that invites people to access their senses, and practice an awareness of everyday life. While the viewers are engaged with my work, they pay attention to, as well as appreciate subtle moments. It makes them slow down, pause and wait, and then move into a higher consciousness. The mind becomes quieted. I work in various media, including video, performance, sculpture, installation, and drawing incorporating materials such as human hair, salt, water and paper. By using the ephemeral, tactile qualities of those materials, I transform the invisible thoughts of the mind into my physical art works that convey the intimate feeling of direct attention to the body. Watching the subtle movements of the hair-thread sculptures for example, allows the viewer to heighten their awareness, dis-identifying from their mind momentarily. I invite viewers to feel their inner body through the image of my body.
