The Henry Jones Art Hotel presents Cristina Palacios’ latest exhibition: Origenes.
Please join us on opening night for drinks with the artist; Tuesday, 5 June 2018 from 5:30 pm.
ORIGENES (ORIGIN), refers to the idea of the beginning of life in the universe. Cristina believes that all life starts as a dot or particle in the universe, a single cell or atom that transforms into ‘prima materia’, energy and sometimes humanity.
This body of work explores her cultural, political, spiritual and personal beliefs, which are grounded in Pachamama (Mother Universe in South American mythology). Pachamama is a sacred cosmic living being and a feminine god that is fertile and nurturing.
With the use of many materials and techniques, Cristina’s approach is interdisciplinary. She uses whatever she feels communicates most strongly the effects that our immateriality, temporality and impermanence has on our environment.
