Arising from her ongoing research on color and rhythm, Monika Bravo’s new works place us in an abyss pulsing with vibrating waves of energy, where readability and meaning remain elusive. After Bergson’s understanding of time and his concept of duration which differentiates between the time that we measure in intervals and the time of our experience. Bravo aims for an interconnected sense of unity between space and time through an understanding of our mind ́s cognitive structure, which gives to formless reality both shape and meaning. Thus, the visual layers and cycles that dwell between those states of abstraction and their corresponding materiality are what Bravo ́s work reveals to us and what we are supposed to experience through it.
