Rita Vargas

In my work, I look upon universal values of compassion and the natural human need for connection by showing openly messages of resistance, defiance, loneliness, isolation in contrast with sharp energy of colours, strong statements through light installations, provoking video art, sensual (or some may say scandalous) images. My art communicates with the audiences with humour and provokes instant reaction with the public that has no choice other than touching, pointing out fingers, raise eyebrows, run away or stop to have a closer look, exhale laughter, feel confused or find comfort. These and other kinds of feelings and reactions are used as raw material in my art progress and this process acts like a creative force for my work to develop further.
