“Nostrum Mensam Est” by Beatriz Simon
The art of Beatriz Simón, a Mexican born artist, combines her interest in self fulfillment and of one’s self search with her very personal mix of techniques and materials. Beatriz Simón works with a variety of mediums in order to build her creations and strengthen her personal artistic search. Originally trained as a painter, Simón has now expanded her repertoire to include found object sculpture, photography, plaster sculpture, performance art, video, and graphic design. Simón’s artistic process separates her from other artists. Simón’s work calls for self reflection and acceptance. Simón believes the imaginary perfection created by society through expectations and myths is not something to admire. The quest for social acceptance has alienated the human being from real and basic interpersonal relationships like family and friends. Simon seeks to create a detachment from these alienating beliefs. True to the nature of abstract art, Simón’s art invites multiple interpretations. Although her work is abstract, the human is ever present. Her works are human expressions with proof of human presence through hands, dripping, handwriting, imperfection, scratching, and improvisation. All elements of the painting tell the story of the person who created it. How Simón constructs her art is a metaphor for how a person builds him or herself.
