Ethical fashion brand Mae Maze has launched its latest collaboration with Spanish artist Daniel Solomons, The art piece presented by Daniel Solomons explores the relationship between body and architecture in the designer’s creations. With a plastic determination based on parameters such as volume, matter or surface, the visual artist analyses the methods and forms of Mae Maze’s compositions, and then, reformulates these approaches dissecting the human body.
Solomons reconfigures the human figure as if they were light layers of skin and breaks it down geometrically into 36 small heavy paper figures, 18 in men and 18 in women, strengthening the unisex identity of the brand. An exercise in construction, deconstruction and reconstruction in which he uses various visual expressions based on photography, drawing and finally reaches the sculptural object The selection and manipulation of noble materials such as paper, oak and steel, and their arrangement as a “whole”, generate tonal variations and create the effect of light and shadow in the composition. They explore the properties of “real space” and demonstrate the artist’s interest in altering our perception and maintain an intense dialogue with space and light. With this subtle dynamic “Flesh” invites us to explore the elusive and seductive poetics of matter and image, but also of fashion, architecture and artistic creation.
