The HeArt is Present
Whiteness in Decay
2003, San Diego Museum of Art
Permanent Collection gift by Paulo Coelho
What feeds your soul? The answers scroll down on the center canvas, as if typed. Left and Right show a process: Skin and Fruit appear — cracking sound, crumbling crust. Everything covered in plaster, all white becomes colored, as shells are destroyed, as fruit and vegetables are eaten, and used as paint.
Three projections, three perspectives: The left screen is the human view: it is close up, the movements seem harsh and bolt. The right canvas shows the entire scene from above — whiteness gradually decaying into a colorful painting. It is detached. From above movements are almost imperceptible. A space to view both, to attach and detach — the center feeds your soul.
