365 Geometrical Days

365 Geometrical Days

365 Geometrical Days, 2015 - 2016.

Wood, cardboard, acrylic paint, fabric, paper, cotton. 300 sculptures exhibited in frames of 90 x 90 cm.


This work is composed of 365 sculptures in small format, each one of them corresponds to the day they were created. The project began on the 1st August 2015 and ended on 31st July of 2016.

Most of the sculptures are made of cardboard and are based on unique geometric moulds made of paper.

In these three frames, only 300 sculptures are exhibited, the rest are kept hidden.

THE ORDER OF THE COSMOS

The work of the artist Belen Santamarina is a methodical development in the great traditions of abstract art.

Her pieces have the filigree of high perfection jewellery, whose mastery we could observe in her project of creating a piece for each of the 365 days of the year and its correlate in Instagram. This persistence reveals the constancy and poetry of an artist's diary displayed with mathematical complexity and future durability.

Her geometric combination is fused to a playful and articulated black and white palette, her works build by summation a universe of Pythagorean laws, miniatures that then expand to macro urban projects.

From micro wall installations to his virtually created designs, his work reflects on space and its metamorphosis, the possibilities of a work that goes from a Euclidean territory to a more complex typological one as in Escher's works.

Artists such as Sol Lewitt, Alejandro Puente, Richard Deacon, Xul Solar, Hilma Af Klint, Maria Juana Heras Velasco are some of the references we discover in her works.

This young artist has developed an intense career through museums, fairs and murals throughout the city of Buenos Aires, growing more and better.
When the colour multiplies in her work, the geometric order creates a Cosmogonic of Game, of possible and composable worlds, is the magic of the hands of a woman that with the mathematical tools makes flower beauty of the universal forms.
