María Fernanda Barrero uses sculpture to examine how our perceptual experiences and our spatial sense of self connect us to this life network. Her work engages with modes of lights, that acts as a vehicle to connect us with silence and unknown spatial experiences. Her tools are the monochrome, color, silence, light, and the containment of space. Her motifs are everyday objects such as books or chairs, enclosed spaces, everyday observations, plants, landscapes, stars, the earth and the sky, dawn and dusk.
