Artwork description

In her work, the artist takes us to a dystopian imaginary full of evaporated sensations and diluted colors that make up a dream like perspective w here the protagonists of the works mix with the background. The ambiguity of the figures is framed by the colors of the landscape w here references to specific places are barely existent.

Only some objects are objectively represented as collage cutouts that are interspersed with sensations left by memories. Opposites are represented by mixing figuration with abstraction. Thus, the dystopia of ‘Covering" shows us a manual and creative process with a literal sample of covering spaces and objects. On the one hand the multiple layers of guesso that the artist applies in her works, and on the other the juxtaposition of different elements, an architecture, some bandages ... exploring meanings and terms beyond the first reflection.
