Tatiana Parcero continues to gain attention for her work this year, with notable acquisitions in Spain, and exhibitions in Florida and California, this spotlight feature in the September | October issue of Christie's Magazine underlines her criticality in a contemporary (and historic) setting. Enjoy this excerpt:
[Parcero] has written that her early work "tended to draw on the autobiographical" . . . But over time, she has expanded the scope of her investigations, using her face, her torso, her hands, even the souls of her feet, as the basis of "maps" on which to explore "concepts of identity, memory, territory and time . . . the relationship between man and Earth, between nature and the body." The images that she incorporates . . . are what she calls "visual metaphors" relating to some of the most pressing issues of our time: climate change, dwindling natural resources and migration.
