Jesús Román
(Santiago, 1978)

Visual artist. I’m interested in the notion of order and neatness, time and weight. The time in which the labor force works in the execution of the work; the craftsmanship put at the disposal of a time that is contained in the work and also my body that is the mediator between time and work. I also try to address weight perception. I consider "the light" more suggestive than "the heavy," yet they are opposites in constant tension. My works can be seen as delicate weightless pieces or as heavy fixed structures.
