Artists’ notes


Mauricio Paz Viola

For me, creativity and art are meant to be shared with the viewer, involving him/her to create – along with the artist – new images and worlds in themselves.

I consider every one of my paintings a mirror in itself, reflecting the viewer’s inner worlds and memories of other worlds inhabited in past lives: as a particle of stardust, as plants, as clouds, beyond what is real and physical; thus allowing the viewer to create and re-create new images and shapes based on his/her emotions and experience and temporarily return to the world beyond the grasp of mundane and rationality; without rules nor limitations, to an endless stream of light, color, energy and vibrations in one with the universe, out there and inside us.


My Music

I loved getting lost in this piece of art  – which is just one in a series of Mauricio’s works.  I wanted to evoke a sense of wonderment and space for philosophical dreaming. I felt that such “spaciousness” required a sonic quality of unending-ness;

Generally I work with acoustic instruments, but for this piece, I delved into some midi sounds, namely, “bliss, tranquil horizon & curved air”  (how could I resist those names? They seem so appropriate!).  The meandering melody line (“curved air”) is intended to carry thoughts where they wish to wander, in a wondering way.

A Uruguayan artist living in Chile is certainly not someone I would meet every day. I found Mauricio’s artwork online and love that although we don’t share a common language,  we can communicate in simple sentences, about our art and project 52, (using google translate).  What a remarkable time we live in!

  • Hello Hello,

    I truly enjoyed your musical composition based on my work. It makes me feel like I’m floating, flying, dreaming, weeping and enjoying it.

    I would like to thank you again for choosing one of my works for your Project 52 and having created this piece of beautiful music. Many thanks, and hugs of light and love

      Hey Mauricio,

      Wow! So thrilled you like my sound-painting of your beautiful art-work. I love that this project connects people from so far away (with a little help from google translate) :-).

      Thanks for trusting me with your art. It’s been a pleasure to work with you.
      All good things to you , across the miles.

  • Very organic, the visuals and the audios, both. There’s an internal feel that goes deeper into the roundnesses and swoosh.

  • Thank you for your sweet words, Bronle! Enjoy art… it is the essence of our being!
