About Arte and Creation
Arte is an expression, and through the techniques he is using in his creation, the artist is acting as an intermediary facilitating the consciousness expansion and a deep reflection about the feelings but also providing a new vision of the work, and new attitudes towards the world, allowing then some more efficiency in this transition. Art forms a whole, which shows the universal vision in its essence and the real values of the current society in which we are living today

A mask reveals more than a face, it is the symbol of the artist's identity as an explorer of the human soul and it´s impossible not to be curious about this object of adoration. Vitoria Sztejnman is fascinate by masks and explores them through sculpture, using materials such as clay. The masks which have been the main topics in Pablo Picasso´s works, as in African Art, are some historical references which have been really important for her in-depth artistic study. In anthropology the mask is considered as an object and a mode of divination, it represents the connection between the world of the living beings and the one of dead persons. In the founding principles of Jung psychology the mask disguises and reveals at the same time the human truth represented by the unconscious.
