My work aims to make visible unseen, unobserved parts of existence. To explore parts of reality that seem invisible. How humans and nature relate, how we humans relate to our own, most of the time, non-acknowledge nature. How we humans have forgotten we are intrinsically nature and the burden this creates between us and the world, the universe we inhabit.
Growing up in Colombia I spent most of my childhood in the country side and studied with nuns my entire education.
These experiences touched and moved me deeply and now they reflect in my work.
Sewing, embroidery, clothes patterns, repetition, etc.; were common practices at school and they transformed into art tools and ways to work.
How the human body and nature were seen through religion and how they were experienced naturally, in daily life.
Seems we experience this relation quite often as a tension between what appears to be chaos and order.
Materials come from everyday life and nature. A close, intimate relation with them reveal the ways to touch them, to treat them, how the work happens. That is also the way how they reveal the (-ir) images.
