The Illustrations of Marcela Cardenas

October 18, 2012

  'My work has always been intimately related to nature, this has led me to the construction of an Imaginary full of coincidences and double meanings that become metaphors which allow me to express feelings about life and death. The"mise-en-scène" of such Imaginary allows me to give a new meaning to common objects and I create a new visual narrative. My point of view about life’s contemporary swiftness is materialized through a series of paintings, drawings and etchings that show the search for beauty by the elaboration of meticulous finishes carried out with patience.' Marcela Cardenas
