IGAL PERMUTH

Location: Guatemala

Within the fauna of archetypal bodies I developed my project of research-representation "The Forbidden Color". With this proposal I seek to unveil the constructions of codes and levels of consciousness, wounds, traces and fragments where a repertoire of languages is constructed.

THE FORBIDDEN COLOR

Within the fauna of archetypal bodies I developed my project of research-representation "The Forbidden Color". With this proposal I seek to unveil the constructions of codes and levels of consciousness, wounds, traces and fragments where a repertoire of languages is constructed.
These expressions question or endorse the Concept of prohibition, whether they are socio-political or socio-economical cultural elements. Childish symbols are important in the construction of my art pieces, since they are the reference, the elements of that moment in life, our childhood, where we build our beliefs and create our agreements with the world of codes with which we reaffirm our criteria.

Forbidden Color 3 “Forbidden Color 3”

Forbidden Color 3, mixed media, 40 x 30 cm. 2017.

Our perception of the world and our voice of judgment forbid the colors of diversity. For that reason, recognizing ourselves as a mirror, makes us know that what we believe about others is a reflection of our own beliefs.

 Forbidden Color,Third World Queen “ Forbidden Color,Third World Queen”

Forbidden Color, Third World Queen, mixed media, 12 inches x 22 inches 2017.

Short attention spans and an intense need to experience constant change can be a fierce obstacle for the Third World Woman. Passionate and irresistible, she will live fast prohibiting the neediness of others.

Forbidden Color 3 “Forbidden Color 3”

FORBIDDEN COLOR 3-, mixed media 80 X 60 CM.2018

The diversity of experience comes not from consciousness itself but from the other multiple emoticons aggregates in the painting: an apparently infinite array of physical and mental objects; the interpretation of these by means of the symbolic language of perception; their texturing with varying shades of pleasant and unpleasant feeling tones; and both the active intentions and passive dispositions respond each moment to the forbidden colors of our thoghts.

 Forbidden Color_ Decolonial boy “ Forbidden Color_ Decolonial boy”

Forbidden Color_ Decolonial boy, mixed media, 80 cm. x 60 cm. 2017.

This decolonial boy is dressed as an ocelot because his soul has left behind the criterion that wild animals are dangerous and forbidden by our humanity. He decolonizes our mind by integrally loving nature and not cultural judgments.
