Yours Truly (fluorescent ink that glows in the dark)

Sabrina Barrios created an innovative painting during the Just Residence/Banco Santander Foundation in Malaga, Spain. Yours Truly (2016) shows a geometric code, created with fluorescent ink that is almost imperceptible in the daylight, but glows in the dark. The audience witnessed its visual power at Just MAD 7 contemporary art fair, in Madrid.

As part of her process, the artist does a thorough research on ancient history, alchemy, cosmology and quantum physics, that is then translated into tactile and emotional paintings.

Yours Truly, along with 11 other paintings (see post below), depicts portals to hidden dimensions, symbols that relate to prehistoric lost civilizations and ways to travel in time.

Artist in Residence at The Wassaic Project | October 2015 | Wassaic, NY

Fossil is a multimedia site specific immersive installation. It was created in an old barn and each of its mediums informs the bigger narrative. The space itself has a dark but meditative atmosphere, and the viewer is invited to participate in what feels to be a different dimension, lead by matriarchy.

Geometric symbols and signs of research on alchemy, ancient civilizations and quantum mechanics–that were part of the process–have their own space in the room, and help the observer understand the installation in its totality.

This series of paintings depicts gateways into hidden dimensions.
According to quantum physicists and mathematicians, we are just one universe among parallel worlds, and even though we can only perceive 3 spatial dimensions (height, width, length) and 1 that concerns spacetime, there are other 7 out there–resulting on a total of 11 dimensions.
The research behind this work encompasses ideas that question reality and are translated into paintings that portray the feeling of each hidden dimension, and how a high speed built in portal would interfere in their fabric.

On view in Governors Island, NY (where the 7th Dimension is located), until August 2nd.
