SATIS HOUSE • ISABEL CUENCA

Friday, May. 8, 2015 – Saturday, Jun. 13, 2015

“When the house and clocks stopped all together.”  Satis House is a paradigm of stagnation. It is architecture that suffers and decrepit as time migrates forward. It becomes the artifact of loss – of structures weathered down to its bare bones. Satis House explores decay as an aftermath of loss. Cuenca alters and combines cyanotype print illustrations and photographic sources to create formal collages, paper constructs and painting assemblages in the lens of a geometric abstract painter. The manipulation process of collaging and folding allows shapes and symbols to lose their real-world connotations and opens the possibility of existing in the realm of fiction. The use of paper is both weighted and light. It can hold its shape, at the same time bend to the force of the creator. It complicates the ideas of the identity the forms take on and their existence in both two-dimensional and three-dimensional space.
