Fuster García's artistic practice is more a verb than a concept; her attitude towards reality, both in her shamanic way of finding and choosing objects, and in delegating the processes of development and expression of the material itself to its finishing.
She understands her sculpture as an intimate dialogue with the world, with the desire to be able to give her works a living autonomy that makes them yawn, smile and dance.
Strongly attracted by the object, as a symbol, as a bodily scheme attached to our body, as a social poem, as a time capsule, as writing and influenced by having grown up in a textile industrial environment, she underlines the materials as witnesses of life, making visible how they can help the (re)narration of one's own reality. She extends the concept of object beyond our visual perceptual limit, understanding as such gravity itself, pollution or the dust we generate.
Recurring themes in her work are women, the description of the world through its material nature and how we generate the concept of history and its documentation.
