With a graphic art that hybridizes manga codes with linear drawing and vintage photography, the work of Mariasun Salgado presents a series of digital collages and compositions with which she subtly alters the traditional codes of representation. By merging and juxtaposing images and graphics which a priori are opposed to each other, Mariasun Salgado emphasizes the absurdities arising from urban systems in which today’s society evolves. Under the registration of contemporary collage, a medium that is increasingly present in our visual horizon, the artists seeks to provoke questions in the viewer for which there is no single answer.
These works are characterized by the representation of the conflicts which are generated between architecture and its environments, specifically those being derived from the urban massification and the concept of hyper-density.
All these topics relate to architecture, are treated through a hybrid graphical language and escape both realism and abstraction.
