Flavia Pitis

 photo 2012spontaneouseventsoflifeI40-50cm_zpsbfa3da87.jpg  photo reflectionofathoughtdet_zps1039773e.jpg Flavia Pitis’ art explores issues of identity and isolation. Her painting does not have the function to represent reality, but to make present what is missing in reality. Most times, Flavia Pitiș realizes this by isolating the subject and his confrontation with the loneliness of the chiaroscuro. Darkness introduces the immaterial, but sensitive forms of expecting something indefinable and outlines the aura of a mysterious presence. The universe of Flavia Pitiș’s actions unfolds in rooms without natural light. Painted by using the chiaroscuro technique, these works present actions that seem to be condemned by being made in the dark. In particular, this dark background creates the opportunity for the appearance of glows, flashes and reflexes. There is nothing else to help define space than the shadow cast by the human figure.

Crawling from the ashes come forth grinning metallic devils with sharp claws and fire blazing in their eyes. Each candle should have a burning time of approximately 20 hours.

I've been born with an innate requirement to create, and by circumstance paint is the vehicle I have chosen. At the easel there is meditation, maybe some insanity that takes place. Sometimes I praise it, sometimes it's my scapegoat. It's a yin and yang thing going on. Whatever it is, there is a drive to get the cerebral into the physical without the ultimate concept ever fully unveiled; and that is why I paint. I'm like a dog chasing a ball but the difference between the dog and I; is that I never catch the damn ball!!" - Joshua Suda  photo Eye3_zpsfd4ee371.jpg  photo eye_zps72226a10.jpg

The residential building is designed for a couple with an independent area for guests and is divided into two parts: one introverted area, articulated by an arrangement of smaller openings following the surrounding typology of the neighborhood; its counterpart is an extroverted zone facing the forest and the beautiful view of the valley. The exterior space is interpreted as an extension of the open living area. The abstracted shape of the gabled roof draws an analogy to the surrounding roof typologies, which is common in Southern Germany. The transformation to an open cubic design made a maximum size of openings possible, as well as the visual merging of living and nature.

We are self taught, we came from Psychology and Philosophy studies which became very handy on our later work. Our style could be considered Lowbrow or Surrealistic Pop and our artistic philosophy always come from a concept that might be shown or neglected at the final shape of our work. We consider ourselves multidisciplinary, we came to think that because we have done projects that include very different media and we have covered pretty much the whole spectrum of techniques including animation, video art, digital art, fineart, illustration, wall painting and sculpture. We have been influenced by many things, movies, comic books, music … and social aspects that concern us and try to give expression to manifest ourselves through our work using imagination to disseminate our thoughts." - CRAJES (Carla Rendón and Jessica Ruiz)  photo _MG_6386_zps90cdaaf8.jpg
