"NOSTALGIA FOR NATURE".
BY MARIBEL PORTELA
FROM JULY 28TH
ENVIRONMENTAL INTERPRETATION ROOM OF THE BOTANICAL GARDEN
We are pleased to present the recent work, made especially for El Charco del Ingenio, by this renowned Mexican artist, whose creativity overflows the limits of conventional artistic activity. Her work keeps a close correspondence with nature, which she uses as a formal and symbolic vehicle to evidence transformation processes through our interaction with it. As a result of this link, Maribel Portela's sculpture builds prototypes and artificial organic models. Through the manipulation of common and natural materials, the artist builds natural imaginaries, whose infinite forms incite in the viewer a playful and provocative experience, in the form of aesthetic utopias of a world that is succumbing.
Maribel Portela has an extensive artistic career: more than 43 individual exhibitions and participation in more than 100 group exhibitions, both in Mexico and in various countries in Europe, Asia, Africa, South America and the United States. He has been a member of the National System of Creators since 2001, has held artistic residencies abroad and his collections are in several museums in Mexico, Denmark, Puerto Rico, the United States and Canada.
Cost: $ 50
