Claudia Aranovich reminds us of our commonly shared ties to nature, ties that are not confined according to national boundaries, and creates a body of work that is diverse, yet universal in its meaning. Her sculptures often incorporate or are realized in translucent resins, a material that can be molded or poured in layers. In a metaphorical sense, it allows the artist “to create organic masses that could appear as a sea of amniotic liquid where memories may be found floating…” In 'Rupture', one of her more powerful pieces. Aranovich has combined a hard-edged geometric form of steel with a resin interior that protrudes from one end. It appears that the clear portion is being revealed, and through its light and energy is dissolving and destroying the constricting metal encasement.
