Glexis Novoa

Artist Statement Submitted 2015

My work repeatedly turns to the architecture of power and politics as its main subject. I investigate aesthetic representations of power in architecture. I compile and decant information codified as symbols and canonic images representative of historical nuclei of power. The collected images and information are ultimately used to demonstrate the eventual loss of significance of the very systems and archetypes they represent, and the disarticulation of discourses through pragmatic processes.

Converting my work into an instrument of social and political criticism, I aimed to make the convergences of strategies used by different systems of totalitarian power universally evident. I intend to synthesize in a "unique" form the diverse subliminal resources of manipulation by ideological, religious, political, or financial systems, which define the appearance of cities, creating a discourse as landscapes.
