About the work of Sergio Femar ... more >

The works of Sergio Femar (*1990 in Galicia, Spain) keep a reminiscence of the refined use of material of Arte Povera, but he indicates a new way to approach it through the various cuts made with wood. Slices of this material are coloured and assembled to create unique and serene reflections.

“My work stands between the calm of the studio and the frenetic pace of contemporary culture and its ephemeral nature. It leads the vandal act to a mature reflection, in other words, brings back the joys of creation without feeling restricted by academic pressure, by using risk as the connecting element between vertigo and serenity.”

My project must be connected with the current moment, with the streets: art reflects the immediate present; it is part of our daily lives, objects that I find and transform. I believe in the idea of the full-time artist and the fact that a work of art is exposed to constant change.

Before I start working there is no other project on my mind, materials come to me and so I start connecting with them, listening to their suggestions, I let the artwork flow and evolve by it."

Influenced by the nature of the street art style, Femar’s work is very aware of the matter that composes it as well as its origins. He does not have a fixed idea in his mind before starting to work. It is the material that comes and connects with him. The artist observes the suggestions and lets the work flow itself. As a result, spontaneity becomes a key element when understanding the process, the features of the physical support, the colour bound to the shape or the three-dimensionality.

Femar’s process needs to be connected to current times, the outside: the painting tries to represent the present moment, daily images that cross each other, objects he finds and transforms. He believes in second opportunities when it comes to work with materials. We live in a society that consumes “things” at a fast speed pace where the existing and available resources are very exploitable. This is where Femar’s work melds to the environment and it is complemented with it as a manner to connect to the ever-changing world we live in.
