LOg is a project that saw the light of day in 2014 between Mea N. Ambrozo and Nicolas Maffre, two artists from Abstract Art. This figurative project born from their love for nature, architecture and their interest in Land art and Minimalism.
LOg is a painting of the moment, cinematographic and dreamlike. In the absence of a human figure, it is nature that becomes a central character. The minimalist staging they offer invite spectators to "connect" (hence the choice of the name of their project "to log") to the history of the painting, as a possibility to contemplate beyond the walls.
"Figurative painting can transcend reality through its realism, and bring to it a notion other than descriptive, otherwise its work becomes a kind of story edge - illustration. Abstract painting for its part may have erased the suggestive elements of reality, without losing ground, without forgetting the preoccupation with reality and its experience.In both cases, we can even say that the border is a space of freedom: that of creation.
Painting is not in the choice of a figurative or abstract camp. On the theoretical level, I practice this abstraction in the ethymological sense of the term. By a composition that generates meaning without referring directly to the concrete first of all. Then, by an idealization of forms and features that allow the representation of a subject. By this the subject is no longer a simple object, but a story, a pictorial discourse. Painting is for me a language in the strict sense, which is not content to seek traces of the world as it presents itself to our eyes. "LOg
