The evolution of my work by Karla Enríquez
I think that art and life are inseparable. I create my work by utilizing diverse
mediums and strategies. I have written poetry and fiction since my adolescence
and since that time I also developed a deep interest in drawing, painting,
photography and new mediums.
My artistic output is distinguished by working in a discontinuous, non-lineal way and consists of constructing different mediums within each individual piece.
I have produced my pieces by being inspired by my environment, more
specifically I have beèn influenced by the disorder and discontinuity in life,
including the mechanisms that provide information in a private, social, cultural
and political context.
I am affected by sound, the urban environment, the forecast of the future, my interest in autonomous systems, randomness, the poetic models that coexist with human behavior, etc.
This is also reflected in my activity as an art student which results in work that at some points is chaotic.
However, my personal chaos constantly feeds my artistic sense and from this chaotic state, I understand art as a dynamic system that manifests itself in an artificial and natural way within time and space.
Some of my influences come from pop art or conceptual artists like Joseph Kosuth, or appropriators like Marcel Duchamp, Jean Dubuffet (art Brut) or recently Tom Friedman, Erwin Wurm, Andreas Gursky, Esther Harris, amongst others.
