Rosa Muñoz's work shows a continuous decontextualization of objects and spaces. They are domesticated outdoor spaces or demolished interiors, always inhabited despite the invisibility of their inhabitants. This permanent deconstruction and construction has led the artist to atomize images in order to explore the link, the expressive and visual capacity of the fragment within them. In this exercise of breaking and composing, she incorporates wood and cellulose, always present in her work, which alludes to the now physical nature of the object.
In this new production, The Semantics of Forms, the artist starts off with photographs of art books that are stacked together to form sculptural compositions of abstract print, where each piece is intimately interconnected with the others, as an essential part of the whole. An accurate formula to conceptually bring the viewer closer to the infinite process of constructing contemporary art, showing both genealogy (origins) and the generation of knowledge through time. These works of countless readings transcend their own conceptual intention to evoke a neuronal morphology, representing surprising and weightless brains that show the anatomical maps of thought.

A paradigm of understanding through a fragmented reality, about the formulation of art as a kind of alchemy and continuous rethinking. An exercise in understanding chaos, which the artist undertakes breaking from habitual patterns.
