Guadalupe Quesada

In response to unanswerable questions about the strangeness of the world I have always seeked refuge in fictional or magical worlds. Nowadays I envision those worlds when I’m working on my sculptures. Provoked by science fiction and biology, using materials such as wood, stone, plaster and clay.

The infinite possibilities that exist in our universe give me the freedom to imagine and create. The trees and their roots, plants, protuberances, tumors, mutations, diseases seen from a microscope and some micro-organisms are the starting point of a process of transformation of the forms, rearranging them to create new assemblies of possible forms of life.

My sculptures are continuously changing and evolving as I work intuitively throughout the process of making. Trying to live in harmony in this chaotic world without direction I construct my pieces without knowing what they will become.
