Jofroi Amaral’s artistic work can be compared to a laboratory in which the different creations are an array of different tools for experimentation. In other words, he considers the pieces he produces more as tools required for the experiment than an experiment as such. Each work or installation is a medium for reflection which must enable the viewer to project himself or herself into the experiment and gain something personal from it.
However, his research is closer to that of an alchemist than that of a scientist.
More than the content, it is the underlying structures, the systems inherent to the processes that attract his attention. But it is above all in the interconnectivity of these structures, stemming from different topical series, that the real focus of his thoughts can be found. It is these fragments, these reciprocal influences,
these junctions and underground networks that hide behind the distinct appearances of the different disciplines that appeal to his mind and feed his imagination.
