The work of Betiana Bradas is raised from the route, the work in layers that are added or subtracted. The emphasis is on the process as a focus, transforming and integrating forms and materials that are apparently dissimilar.
In his work, transformation is mutation, it is a dizzying and radical change. The materials with which he works are sometimes manipulated in a subtle way, but at other times, they are subjected to tears, breaks, deformations and even forced to the point that they become unrecognizable.
Without pretensions to insert itself in the most rigid geometry or historical constructivism, it sometimes alludes to the modular and the rigorous calculation, making premeditation coexist with the visceral.
In Bradas’ work, action and gesture leave traces of the physical journey that involves the execution of each piece, relating his production to abstract expressionism. In the process he manages to unify body-sign-matter, and transfigures it into indivisible unity.
