Biography

Amparo Sard started her career piercing small white papers. Self portraits in surrealistic situations where she was expressing with a very personal language and technique. She continued evolving in her research by enlarging papers and creating white huge fiberglass installations or aluminum sculptures. Today Sard uses all kind of materials: resin paintings, polyurethane, videos and recently recycled plastic, being also involved in the conservation of the planet and trying to raise awareness. In her work white color represents what we see from eyes out, a linear reading of our environment. Black, deformations or exorbitant dimensions show other kind of images totally opposite. They allow what really moves us, what we perceive from the eyes inward, what provokes effective emotions, the tension that awakes our intuition.
“Piercing help me to connect everything, breaking the old idea of the image but also a representation of this going trough inside, and hint at its most sinister meaning. To create tension there has to be an initial image, the one that reminds us how it should be, projected by our memory; and a final image, presented to us in the artwork.”
