Julia Mota studied architecture before becoming an artist. In these intimate compositions, that resemble an after image- a vision left in the retina after you close your eyes- Mota synthesizes volumes and planes of perspective taken from characteristic architectural elements she observes in the chaotic landscape of São Paulo. The punctual white areas reveal the emptiness, spaces with a lack of building- such as demolitions and parking lots between buildings- inviting the viewer into a vanishing point. The relationship between these works are their desire to express the essence of a space, fictional or real, using subtraction, between the abstract and the figurative. They translate and define the architecture of a space through its atmosphere, or Stimmung- the authenticity that is constituent of every landscape.
