Silvia Martin del Campo
Mexican visual artist based 17 years ago in Córdoba, Argentina. She uses painting, photography and collage mainly as media. Her work revolves around existential reflections, She is interested in the transformation of the human experience through the capacity for contemplation and connection with the environment. She seeks to create images that function as vehicles of introspection and mental parentheses.
My process begins from the observation and the photographic record, I stop at the ephemeral traces left by everyday moments, I am interested in the search for beauty, not as an aesthetic end but as a place of balance, of harmony, something that is more related to the spirit, with the constant pursuit of an intuition.
I am drawn to organic forms, elements of nature, textures, folds, I find a strong connection between the seemingly fragile and the deep. In my view, there is or is not the will to look into things, sight becomes thought, it becomes sharper and more penetrating, one finds the fracture, the crack, the limit through which one can intuit or not, the secret of existence.
The experience was very inspiring, I felt very attracted from the beginning by the topic that was proposed, it seems to me that this is a great “hook” for when one is looking for this type of experience because it already places you in that reflective place from before begin.
The super professional team Andi, Alicia, Daniela and Alen make you feel all time the teamwork and constant collaboration. Undoubtedly, the experience of working remotely with my 3 colleagues was very inspiring.
The first time I worked that way collectively and it was super rewarding. The returns of Alicia and Daniela opened new windows for my work and my work, many concepts that I want to deepen resonate with me.
