'Red Illusion' is a newly released limited edition by Helena Garza a Mexican visual artist, living and working in Mexico City. Her work has, as point of departure, the visual poetry of the everyday; photographs of spaces and situations understood as the inexhaustible reality that refuses to be reduced to a single sense. That is, it arises from the intimate universe, from thoughts and emotions, from memories and desires that, together with the blazing exuberance of its environment, it breaks down into fragments; perhaps as a reflection of the present understood as a constant process of decay and renovation.
Far from a chaotic mishmash, the artist's work explores dreamlike harmonic settings through juxtaposed images and textures of people and spaces taken from the daily life, as well as global social phenomena.
These images, figurative memories, are manipulated using the inexhaustible digital possibilities and this process results in oversaturated and extrapolated realities of the day to day: poetic exposition of the real, of the objectual and material, as well as of the oneiric, the metadiscursive, the metafigurative. They are atmospheres eroded by the postmodern turn from which we understand and experience the landscape in a physical and virtual way. Its aesthetic discourse thus opens transversely to the reductive idea of a single reality and, therefore, it is also critical of current dystopias.
