Being lucid but also very gifted with true carnivalesque humour, namely of a grotesque-imaginative-sarcastic nature, Maria Pop Timaru is concerned with the pinkish octopus of consumerism. From the ever changing tide of advertising and from the volatile Plastisphere, the artist collects her heteroclite materials for her figurative work. She comprises installational, window dresser-ish assemblies, in a corrosive-parodic manner and (adds) poly substance, polychromic/polychromous, polystyrene-ish, polyurethane-ish matter. She made her debut in 2006 with an exegetical and exhibitory project on the infestation of the visual urbanism with the monomania of the aggressive advertising of the mass consumerism.
Being a tonic quibble with matteristic hypertrophy, the infrarealism suggested by Pop Timaru has been, for us, the most straightforward offensive against the “consumeristic Down syndrome” (since the present times).
