The concept of Time in the work of Berta Paco

In the coming months of August and September, you will be able to see Berta Paco's work at CC Miramar in Sitges, within the Collective of the Aiguacuït group, and also in October, at Cora Egger's Atelier in Barcelona.

The concept of Time in the work of Berta Paco

A year has passed since the spring of 2023, when many of us discovered the work of the young artist Berta Paco Sánchez (Barcelona, 1985-2020), through the retrospective exhibition Camins d'Aigua that took place at the CC Miramar de Sitges. An exhibition accompanied by a series of interesting additional activities, which helped to contextualize and give more strength to what was exhibited. Of those acts, the conference of the professor in History of Art, Lourdes Cirlot, stood out. She saw, in Berta's, an interdisciplinary and complex work, with perfect speech; close to the art heritage of the 20th century and the young artists of postmodernity at the beginning of the 21st.

Cirlot pointed out how meticulous Berta Paco was when preparing the projects; both Faculty work and professional challenges. Reviewing her career, she analyzed several exhibited pieces and compared them with contemporary masters, showing the great quality that emanates from this artist's work, where, among others, one theme prevails: Time. With traces, colors and light, Berta composes metaphors of "clocks" to grasp time and interpret it. Cirlot points out that this tendency is due to the fact that the artist feels captivated by Time, in domains of light Space; an idea not shared by other postmoderns who fuse time and space, to affirm a unique present.

The binomial Space-Time leads Berta to show simultaneous opposite worlds. There is a unique time for different spaces. There is a world of childhood, full of light, color and fantasy, and there are spaces where "other realities" unfold. And also at the same time the inner place of one's own questions. Author and recipient agree with the canvas their visions. It is the thesis of an Artist who, like Lewis Carroll's Alice, leaves behind the white rabbit clock, jumps into the well and falls into a time where she paints images of great diversity. Meanwhile, he struggles to touch the ground in the imaginary world that, like everyone, he longed to inhabit. Life path during which Berta has created a Work that remains for us to enjoy and reflect on.
