Mery Godigna Collet, born in Caracas Venezuela, 1959, has participated in 25 solo and 36 group exhibitions in Venezuela, Colombia, Mexico, Spain, Italy, France, Germany, Holland, Belgium, New York, Miami, New Mexico and Texas.
As her thinking on the visual arts evolved, her ideas and attitude on how to approach art has changed. Her interest in ecological matters has grown and the “concept” has become the “nuclei” of her work. The concept and the technique run parallel though morphogenesis principles, as the artist acts as an “activator” producing a cause in the unconventional materials she uses. The final “consequence” allows her to reach her goal: Portraying the subject with the subject. In her works, she shows a tendency to minimalism where the only statement is a call to reflection.
Mery Godigna Collet’s artistic proposal is based on 4 research projects involving new techniques that reveal ways “concepts” translate through “matter.” Matter, Time, and Space (Materia, Tiempo, y Espacio) 1997, Done with Fibers (Hecho con Fibra) 2003, Metallic Light (La Luz Metalica) 2006, Extra Virgin Petrus Oil, 2008
