Mar Ramón Soriano's work focuses mainly on ceramics and textiles as the media for her research that explores the relationship between the body and everyday objects. Mar makes use of a palette of pastel tones, alluding to flesh, to skin, sometimes managing to provoke a dichotomy between the sweet and the repulsive.
Through the combination of these materials in an intuitive way, the artist reflects in her works on gender issues, the concept of home or society, while highlighting the aesthetic and functional properties of the objects.
"The processual and theoretical investigation that I am currently carrying out places the materiality of things at the centre of my interest. The dialogues, and the constructive methods depend on the objectual nature that is articulated according to weights, resistances and fragilities. Everything is born from a conscious look around oneself that reads the connotations that each thing brings to the final composition.
The body is just another object, stretched, moulded, hanging by a thread or placed in precarious conditions. Represented with ceramics, it brings a component of drama and fear of breakage. Volumes, colours, densities and arrangements.
A shopping bag leaves a mark on my fingers. I look at the prehensions that are generated between what surrounds us and ourselves and observe how ergonomics design tools that adapt to the dexterous hand, and how at the same time they generate an increasingly minimal and determined gestural theatre. I am interested in common, everyday materials because they go unnoticed due to how common they are, and I take advantage of their implicit meanings in an exercise of constant tergiversation".
