The mouth speaks of the richness of the heart, says the sacred text. This statement applies to all areas and, in particular, to art. There is no possible creation in its deepest sense, without the presence of the “animus” that rests in the artist’s mind.
In an increasingly refined language, Delsy Rubio explores the metaphor of man’s relationships with the universe, recreating the life cycles of the earth so closely linked to the cosmography of which we are part. The harmonious composition of curved and straight lines in her work also speaks to us of her own vital perception of his balance.
Delsy Rubio’s pieces are permeated with serenity and silence. All of them convey with delicate eloquence the close relationship with nature and their respect for an imaginary environment where excesses have no place.
Hers is a systematic work that has allowed her to explore from a very young age the richness of lines and colors, the simplicity of figures, minimalism, geometry and abstraction in an ordered universe, but at the same time flexible where volumes can generate the illusion of movement.
Hers is also the look accustomed to observing the play of light and shadow that is expressed, in her most recent works, through discontinuous reliefs and shapes that highlight the qualities of the materials used. It is this deliberate interruption in the relief that conveys the feeling that the levels are floating freely.
Faced with the aesthetic proposal of Delsy Rubio, the viewer manages to immerse himself as an interlocutor in the dialogue of his volumes and make the spaces they inhabit his own. It is therefore a fortunate encounter with art, a joint celebration between the public and the artist.
