About the Artwork:

“Taking as a starting point the iconic book by Franz Kafka, I have tried to make an image that shows a process of introspection that leads to a change, a metamorphosis. A large number of elements generate a single creature, with its lights and shadows, which remains in a perpetual process of change, where the imaginary and the beauty of the absurd are its fuel.” – Vorja Sánchez

About the Artist:

(Artist Bio)

I try to be alert to those forms, generally of organic constitution, that I find in everyday life. In the notebook I usually make a quick note of the basic structure, or of how the different elements that share or inhabit the same space are connected. Later, I develop it in my studio. It is fun to play at giving an appearance to fauna and flora that a priori (rationally) should not have. Nature, being ubiquitous, allows you to empathize with a creature even if you have never seen it before. You can create a being with a new appearance, but if you follow the guidelines you observe in the natural elements, it will be familiar, friendly. That’s the point I’m trying to reach with my work. Nature, in its inherent essence, grants the same dynamics of form regardless of the transcendence or size of each being, plant or element. In this way, a microorganism can have the same spheroidal structure as a galaxy, or the stone of a fruit the labyrinthine appearance of the shell of some type of invertebrate.
