Title: NATURAL BEAUTY
Work developed during the residency and presented in the group exhibition Tierra para Habitar. Body painting, using earth, flowers, leaves, thread, glue, and acrylic paint.
“The work “natural beauty” represents the connection that exists between nature and the human being, that bond that surrounds us in our days and nights, which helps us to find ourselves, connect and to realize that natural beauty is found in the smallest details, like mud, which represents renewal, that as human beings are ever-changing, that in each path or in each step we take, we renew our ideas, our emotions and our senses with the whole, the flowers and butterflies that symbolize the beauty of every human being.
