The work of Betiana Bradas arises from a route, the use of layers in her technique is fundamental, they add or subtract to one another. The emphasis is keen on the process of the making, transforming and integrating materials that seem to be distinct.
In her artworks,, transformation is taken as a mutation, it is seen as a vertiginous and radical change. The materials she implements in her work are used in a subtle way, although sometímes they are manipulated into tears, cracks, deformations and are even forced to the point where they become unrecognizable.
With no intend to box herself inside rígid geometry or historical constructivism, she reaches out for a strict yet free calculation.
In Betiana`s canvas, you can clearly notice how the movement and gesture leave a significant footprint of the route which involves each piece and brushstroke, matching her production with abstract expressionism. In this process she manages to unify body-sign-matter and transfigures it into an indivisable unit.
