The poetic dimension of matter in the work of Natalia Mela
THE ATTEMPT TO SEEK OUT and explore the genetic code of art works can to an extent be based on measurable parameters, if the effort focuses on the self-sufficiency and autonomy of artistic creation. That is, if it focuses on parameters related mainly to the quality of the individual composition. This means that it is essential to discover the relation that governs the artist's inner need to express the external stimuli they encounter and its cause; to trace the processes that co-ordinate the conscious and the unconscious components of a work's individual characteristics, which are as much the contents of the composition as they are the composition of the contents. Again, without completely escaping the danger of excessive subjectivity, such an interpretative mood is more productive, if I might say so, and also more educational, in following the social workings of the creative event.
