My mind flows back and forth between form and formlessness. Rather than reflect on images in and of themselves, I contemplate images before they turn into thing, into sign, into concept. I concentrate on the substances that make them up, on the most abstract reaches of their materiality: light, darkness, color, space, time, contrast, shade. The combination of those elements is what makes up all the images that enable the world to exist for our eyes. It is amid those elements that the visible ensues. Karina Peisajovich studied at the National School of Fine Arts Prilidiano, Pueyrredón in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
