Diana Fonseca, Untitled, from Degradation series
TAP TO ZOOM
2019 |Outside painting of facades on wood | 59 x 59 in
Diana Fonsecas’ Degradations are works conformed by scraps of paint layers from different Havana’s facades. Such random old paints overlapped generates an abstract visuality that rescue, from an autonomous artwork, the city’s history and the intimate history of the individuals that inhabit that city. The title itself points to the series idea: Degradación (Degradation), degradation in a temporal and physical sense –deterioration, fading, forgetting– and also, logically, in a symbolic dimension.
