In his art, Ignacio Uriarte occupies himself with the topic of everyday work, using materials and objects for the artworks that can be found in any office. In doing so, he turns his sketches, installations and paper pieces into poetic documents that grapple with the issues of time, structure, order and monotony, and creative potential in seemingly inefficient moments, for example when doodling on a writing pad during a conversation. With his conceptual approach, and by using materials from ordinary office surroundings, Uriarte builds an impressive bridge between the working and the artistic world.
