Descripción del proyecto
ARTE CISORIA is a project promoted, organized and elaborated by the Institute of Research in Art and Animation Technology of the University of Salamanca, that takes as its starting point the text titled Arte Cisoria (The Art of Carving), written by Enrique de Villena (1384-1434).
The text Arte Cisoria is the leitmotiv of this exhibition and the reference point for the creative proposals of the 58 artists who participate in this project. Arte Cisoria talks us about the art of cutting, trimming, splitting or carving and, at the same time, suggests us the use of tools such as knives, scissors, scalpels or razor blades, beyond the text itself. In the images, each participating artist gives free rein to his or her creativity. We can appreciate different approaches such as humor, critical sense, a heartbreaking tone, social drama or a contemporary look at the concept of cutting.
The works that are shown in this exhibition have been made by means of digital screen printing, a process of printing conditioned to the obtaining of some metal molds from the images provided by the artists, and that are treated digitally to adapt them to the silkscreen process.
This project is led by José Fuentes, professor of drawing and engraving at the University of Salamanca, and is based on the idea of Paco Mora, director of the PXP Grafic engraving workshop. Paco Mora is an artist from Albacete linked to the tradition with which Albacete is identified: the knives and the craft of the folding knives, tools that arose to solve the function of cutting.
Arte Cisoria has the support of several entities, including the Albacete Municipal Museum of Knives and Cutting Tools, which thanks to the organization of this project the donation of the exposed work, a result of the extraordinary creativity and originality of the participating artists.
