The concept of ‘transformation’ is the common thread to follow for the COMEL Award 2014. Through metamorphosis and evolution, transit and becoming, the work of art made of aluminum undergoes a transformation filled up with symbolic meanings.
The artist is free to express himself/herself and to create his/her artwork by using the metamorphic capacity of aluminum.
The subject matter lends itself to the action of the artist who gives always different and free modeling, sometimes reshaping the medium beyond recognition and offering an unexpected occupation of space and an unforeseen form.
Transformation is revolution, freedom from the matter. The artist shapes aluminum and it becomes a new medium under the viewer’s gaze.
