Susana Cabrera (1950) has been in contact with visual arts since 1974. She is also a psychiatrist psychotherapist. By crossing both fields, her work explores different forms and supports to apprehend the invisible and subconscious, to make tangible the sphere of transcendence that surrounds even the smallest organisms.
The work refers to the idea of becoming and of a nature that, far from being static, is crossed by secret transformations. Overlaps and transparencies, as well as the choice of materials, lead to materialize this concept. The work has a hybrid aspect. It refers to the folds and movements of the mineral kingdom, where strength and duration are measured by intensities that are foreign to us. This mutant aspect triggers the imagination through different perceptual adventures.
Cabrera portrays the different processes of nature, the impermanence and the Aura of the elements.
