Becky Guttin

The visual language of Becky Guttin is related to the millennial Mexican tradition of sculpture that has generated archetypes of time, space, the finite, the infinite and the divine. The typical products of the Mexican traditions are transformed into the category of universal cultural constants, when they are sculpted or ordered like modules or packaged in modern industrial containers. Guttin collects industrial "junk" and organic materials and creates her sculptures from the fusion and combination of these materials. The sculptural proposition of Guttin is a form of conscience, when civilization has evolved into a colossus of ruins, rendering urgent their archeological interpretation. Guttin redeems from death the memory of objects that have been cast aside. She seeks to return to the world that which was once forgotten and humiliated.
