TROPICAL DEPRESSION is a solo show by Fi – Sofía Alvarado (Panama, 1984).
In a pure state of consciousness, life is simple.
The understanding of the metaphor is that the language of nature gives us the answers if we are able not to interfere with the message. Does nature think? For what purpose does nature exist? All science has as its sole objective to find a theory of nature. Few adults are able to see her in the eye. Most people do not see the sun. The nature lover is one who has preserved the spirit of childhood in his maturity. The observation of the degradation in shape, texture and colour of tropical plants in conjunction with the imagination, they created possible silhouettes and defined a palette of colours and materials, which is a kind of game that became something more. The eye observed and the mind twisted and recreated it in its own way.
In a metaphorical way, this exhibition touches on the theme of maturity, and depression of the mind and body. From this state of consciousness where you understand that being is the purest. That art is freedom, that freedom is life, and that life is art. That dictates the spirit of nature.
Losing colour, dying, and resurrecting.
