Artist comment about this artwork: "An ongoing investigation interpreted throughout my research in various forms materials and processes The circle and the spiral form represents the Universe evolution and the spiritual growth throughout our lives The spiral reaches out beyond the circle and continually transformsMy previous profession as a fashion designer has influenced my use of fabric sewing and craft materials I am attracted to detail and fine handicraft and these techniques are used to generate a sense of wonder and absorption in my major projectThis project investigates my personal cultural and spiritual beliefs in particular the spiritualized Mother Earth figure called Pachamama in Argentinean cultureThe circle is explored as spiritual motif as well as notions of energy cyclical repetition and transformationThe circle is an important motif throughout my research because it symbolizes unity infinity and wholeness I believe that all life starts as a dot in the universe a single cell or atom that transforms into matter energy and sometimes humanity The circle the spiral form organic shapes and natures fractal geometry are part of my ongoing investigation My approach is interdisciplinary however I am inspired by the hidden potential of unconventional materials and the spontaneity of drawing practices particularly within an installation contextIntuition spontaneity and chance occur through the use of unconventional materials that allude to packaging and the environment using plastic materials to play with the idea of immateriality temporality and impermanenceMy works reveals a Latin American sensibility with strong links to both traditional art and the Neo-concrete movements in Brazil I am also influenced by traditional Japanese art and my art combines an eclectic range of influencesThis openness is an important aspect of my practice which aims to communicate notions of energy transformation and potential across cultures".
