Since the beginning of artistic creation, nature has played an important role in all creative deeds. Cave paintings have shown this relation and from there artistic evolution and art history go hand in hand fulfilling this dialogue, which as humans and particularly artists continuously have with what surrounds us. Van Gogh said: “Keep your love for nature, that is the true way to learn and understand art.” We know that art in its development process has gone through innumerable art movements and tendencies. But I believe that artist still approach and continue to learn from nature. Specially now days that nature awareness is a crucial issue. We all see with sadness the deterioration that man is causing to our planet. With this in mind artists participate with their means, trying to create conscience and open our eyes first to understand some what better natures wonders and the universe we live in. And at the same time through art feel the phenomena of natures presence around us.
Inés Cusi work is not unfamiliar to all this, on the contrary it is focused on an artistic vision in which the center of its creative process is the original source and principle of all things, and like any congruent artist with its language, Inés dose not distinguish her artistic work with her life philosophy, which as a human being and as an artist feels part of the universe we all live in. A universe full of wonders such as life itself. Her sculpture shows us the moment of creative gestation that has to do with the universe source, the moment when the seed has already been fertilized, when the matrix already bears the fruit, that will derive to light a new being, the cave that protects and embraces the conceived. It is that crystalline seed, the source of light that reflects in its entrails the surrounding world of which it is already part. Her art has to do with life, with the universe, but above all, I think it has to do with love, love for art, love for life, love of the cosmos. Love to everything that surrounds us, a way of approaching the daily work with an integrated and congruent life philosophy. Her work leads us to reflect on what is truly important, to question our priorities and to understand our place and mission in the world.
