Sergio Femar’s work is inscribed in the European pictorial tradition that affirms from abstraction its will of knowledge of the world.
In line with the great painting that passes from the previous century to the most current abstraction, Femar responds to the challenge of great artists, hence the intense vitality of an artistic process that awakens the hidden connections to the eye that looks, training it to see. Seeing, as a previous step to knowing. Form, color and composition reveal to the spirit the complexity of existence.
More about the artist
Without emotional or anecdotal references, Sergio Femar’s work represents itself, from the forcefulness of matter, to reach the evidence of the spirit. There are no “themes”, there are “universals”.
The experience is eternal, the practice is current. Femar works with a wide range of aesthetic strategies, materials and supports that are part of his daily life, with the aim of delving into the creative process. His starting point is the moment in which he lives, a capitalism saturated with consumable novelties, from which he rescues the enduring elements; sometimes searched for, sometimes found, to give them a new, perhaps definitive, form. It is not difficult to find in her production the elements that were discarded by the chain of consumption, which discards elements in its frenzy to accumulate new productions, equally disposable. Hence, his recycled fabrics, reconstituted wood or discarded debris, are transfigured in his work into testimonies of a sustainability that is increasingly compromised by the system.
Insisting on the act of painting is thus the unfinished performance of matter in search of its deepest meaning. More human.
