Transient [Transitory – temporal- transcendent / of ll. transiens, participle taken. to transīre ‘to transfer’]

Gazes and reflections on presence, experience, memory and the ephemeral inhabit Gabriel Verderi’s work. He reveals them in the way of hints and suggestions, raised so that the viewer approaches from his own conceptual and aesthetic experience, to the author’s version of being.

Linked to his tradition of representation, he uses transfer on paper and chalk as a means of recording appearance. Search for delicate, weightless and timeless snapshots that become the skin that metaphorically and poetically dresses ideas. Verderi considers it necessary to search for sufficiently clear and essential formulations that make it easier to connect perception and reflection, without losing contact with the reality that originated it.

The artist tells us about personal paths, the orographies and the poetics of memory. It it’s proposal in a poliform landscape format designed to generate resonances to take us beyond the gaze and facilitate a holistic perception of the whole.

As the landscape pass, I become aware of the path that is always under my feet.

« To be present on the path is to watch the ground pass under my feet, while the landscape gives me position and awareness of being transient. To see it is to observe the hidden substrates of lost memories and to find the link with one’s own history. Walking places us in the vertical and makes us present, but it is in the path itself where we transfer our step and leave a record of being.

It is for all this that walking paths places me on the conscious threshold of existence. On the paths I have shaped experiences, memories and I have recognized my condition as an eternal passerby through common territories that link us. On the paths, I find my meaning and feel ephemeral presences as their form ».
