SPAIN, 1966

Carmen Pastrana’s work moves between painting and drawing. She habitually uses a neutral and unreal background that acts as an insulator. In most cases, white is the color she uses for the backgrounds. She aseptically places the different elements and checks how, by canceling the background noise, they are redefined.
These compositional amalgams produce paradoxical encounters that frequently function as an assault on the possible.
In a way, they are visual metaphors open to reinterpretation and seek to establish connections between the real and the fictional, without lacking humor, illusion and fantasy.
