Artist

Maya Pacifico

In the hands of the artist a fragile and ephemeral material as the page of a book becomes material to create original sculptures: the paper is supple, long live and vibrating.
Her creations are three-dimensional volumes from the complex architecture and they are born from the overlap of layers of pages from the impalpable delicacy, that the artist gets with an infinity of cuts manuals and folding, realized with the extreme skill technique of the sculptor.
Maya Pacifico builds great surfaces approaching single forms whose base is constituted by looms that they act from support for the papery material revealing us the hidden expressive potential, from the point of view of the perception , of a subject marked from the time and from the usury as the pages of an old book.
The surfaces so gotten they simulate organic forms as a straw expanse or a lawn moved by the wind and they are animate from an inside dynamism revealed by the facets of the hundred and thousand to read thin plates that trap the changing chromatic tones of the light and the shade.
Through this trial the artist produces unique pieces because the pages, always different, they become an only work irrepetible, a light construction in equilibrium among material and immaterial, that is lent to continuous trespasses in other circles: from the architecture to the design, for preparations for fairs and international shows.
