FERMIN FLEITES

ART FROM MIAMI

As a visual artist, I understand that the complexities of human nature are essential in the symbolic representations that define my productions. My artwork transcends the physical structure of reality to document imaginary events, using different media – painting, sculpture, bronze sculpture, drawing, video installation, – and unusual materials such as gunpowder, soil, carmine and organic materials of different origins. The visual resulting of this process is a graphic documentation of my interaction with different societies.

Recent Work

The leitmotif in my works is the exploration of the defining roles of cultural diversity and individualism that make us human. In 1999 I traveled to the Peruvian Amazon, jungle in order to complete a master degree in Cultural Anthropology and Media. My travels and studies provided me the opportunity to test my thesis about the social function of art in societies different than ours. This investigation focused on those resistance and folklorization mechanisms that indigenous groups utilize in response to external incursions and influences.
