Because with time, Maria-Carmen’s torsos volumes come undone into skins. Then sudden epiphanies arise, moments when the skin coincides with the plane, moments when the volumetry reduced to its minimum coincides with the planar and non-projective dimension.
The corporeal sums up to the epidermic and thus anticipates the sort of scarce material density characteristic of Maria-Carmen’s poetics: spiritualise the matter through amorous treatment, free it from its weight and opacity to turn it into pure aesthetic appearance.
In this neutral marble, without interiority, what matters is the surface. Frequently, it is treated like a simple plaster model, compressed to its minimal thickness, destitute from its force of gravity, keeping the visible mark of hands.
