Cristina Almodóvar (Madrid, 1970) shows her particular vision of nature through sculptures and installations that bring the sensation of contemplation that occurs in the natural environment to the exhibition space. She captures the subtlety of fleeting moments—as if time stood still—in delicate pieces, almost visual poems resembling the Japanese haikus.
Her painstakingness when working the iron makes it almost organic, and her pieces seem to acquire surprising realism when put to represent nature. In addition to metalworking, she has been conducting constant research into new materials.
The spontaneity of her observer capacity coupled with the passage of time has led to a much more elaborate reflection, whereby the present tension between the rational and the organic has acquired centre stage.
