Magaly Sanchez, Lima – Perú, 1969.
The visual research, the exploration of form and volume, of light and darkness, such as the day and night of this artist's autobiographical works, make the popular image and the various techniques to represent it an emanation that flows from the inside out, the entrails, the belly of a woman who delicately and sometimes nauseates guts to offer us the most intimate and beautiful of human emotions. Because the woman is an inspiration for Sanchez, because what has to do with women is the engine that this artist ignites through the subtlety and forcefulness in the study of a body and feminist consciousness, motherhood and origin of life itself. Because the consciousness of a woman emerges among the flowers of Sanchez, among the petals that draw the stage that this artist creates for his characters. These flowers or geometric figures are allegorical and metaphorical characters with which Sanchez demonstrates in addition to a rigorous technological creative process in the search and configuration of the iconography of the work, a great technical skill, later, with the pictorial means of brush and palette.
Because the process with the use of new media generates a new artistic behavior that is as important to this artist as the result. After perfecting the idea / concept / iconography of the work, this artist who emerges from the new artists with great force and projection, moves the digital image of the work to the canvas through projectors and then paint with acrylics an image that is made more and more perfect in the palette of a classic but unconventional artist.
Harmony, plants as a symbol of life, a butterfly as a hope for change, the cyclical and the order of the geometric, compose a humanist work and with social concerns that becomes in works that if we see them close to us seduces us by trapping the soul and if we see them from afar, we run to look for them.
The canvases of Magaly Sanchez are windows in the light of the spirit, the detail of the soul. Sanchez presents fragments of masterpieces that have inspired many artists and from them, from this appropriation, as well as popular images, the artist constructs a rereading of her own that makes the history of art the archive that drives her concerns most current.
Some details of Op Art make the Pop of Sanchez the most contemporary and visual revival of an artist that reflects and is reflected in the coexistence of the best of art history, in a cluster of iconographic resources that reinvent themselves to be in the middle of the century XXI, an art of emotion, research and understanding. A call to the beauty and the soul in the shadows that makes Sanchez the maker of a path of light for the expression of metaphors and the virtuous palette of a great artist, a human being who with a humanist art envelops us in the stories of a creator who with vocation, conviction and hard work gives and will give much to speak in the corridors of the art market. The work of Magaly Sanchez is essential in the collection of an art lover, someone who wants to invest in art that quotes upward, of someone who loves light and darkness, someone who seeks the balance of form, virtuosity technique and the beauty of catharsis.
