(Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, 1983)
Capi Cabrera balances between the contrast of industrial materials with surface finishes such as acetate, methacrylate or artificial rubber and the warmth of the gesture and its expression. The use of these materials and the possibility of transformation imply a detachment from the final image, from the work. Predominating a clear positioning on the value, the importance of the processes and research that become more important than the final result. It is impossible to understand painting without waiting.
The creative processes related to abstraction and non-referential mechanisms allow Capi Cabrera to find a way of expression, a language, a game where to be attentive to the findings and a search for coherence between the pictorial and experiential processes.
Concepts such as chance and serendipity are embraced as a method of approaching the processes; an attempt to move away from the idea of the result as something foreseen and planned. The trace as a gestural extension of the body; the emptiness as an element that generates transformations; the brightness and the light; make the processual become one of the main values for the work as a consequence of this creative becoming.
