The Poetic Design: From Mimesis to Catharsis

Homero Ruiz
Book project and drawings (2019)

“The Poetic Design: From mimesis to Catharsis”, explores the visual poetry and takes up the bases of Greek aesthetic philosophy through its four main stratum elements: Mimesis – Poiesis – Apate (Aesthetic Illusion) and Catharsis. The series of illustrations are part of the artist’s Master Thesis at the Bauhaus Universität Weimar and are the result of analysis in “the natural process of creation” and the visual poetry generated from the alteration of meanings in materiality by melting discourses into this physical elements.
