There are African people who build skyscrapers with mud. The sculptor from Andorra Gaset Flinch uses corten steel and iron, hard material that softens with the combination of tiles to lift feelings. These pieces are poetic, but not literary, but strong and expanding from its architectural volumes. Defensive as high towers, but with a sensibility that expands the secrets of the looks that are in each piece.
Each person has his/her own inner castle where to hide when (s)he wants to be oneself. Gaset Flinch confirms different situations where we have gone through her own artistic experiences. In this way her buildings are figures full of life.
She takes a firm and broad line, line she colours in a palette of warm toasted low voltage and not strident colours, although the inks are from bright and dark red to golden yellow wine, through the entire scale, provided all these chromatics, rambling in planes where the white and, if necessary, the black will match everything.
This work goes one step further than the Minimalist artists: although painted spaces do not look nothing more than painted spaces, these spaces also indicate that there is an spiritual speech in its own presence.
To say that we are faced with a constructivist work, neoplastic, minimalist, geometric or abstract, it would be nothing more than to practice critical reductionism. All these descriptions are nothing more than models of expressiveness. Mercè Juve has chosen to express through painting her intimate troubles: these are her works.
