FROM THE EARTH AND THE SEA
It is the suggestive name that hides the project in which two brave artists have embarked: theceramist Eulàlia Oliver and y the photographer Fina Lunes. Each artist has taken as his starting point his personal work. «The plat», Oliver’s porcelain and «Caracolas» photographs from Lunes, finally creating a collection of delicate pieces, plates and cups that give rise to works-objects.
The risk, the adventure, is what attracted Fina Lunes from the beginning, a Catalan photographer who starts from fashion photography and portraiture, a work she does not abandon. This is rather an exploration of other paths, from where the graphic work starts, an incursion through different ways, because in art everything has to be intermingled, and within the personal research of Fina Lunes there is a big fan, in which this project, “Of the land and the sea…” has a place.
At the end of the day both artists intend with this work to say the same things in parallel ways. Light and color, form, even poetry, are elements shared by Fina Lunes and Eulàlia Oliver. Common notes that are fundamental when it comes to understanding this artistic commitment, a job that should not go unnoticed by its beauty and its courage.
