About the Artwork:
“This image is directly related with one dream I had. A silky and very fragile white fabric travelled like a snake through several streets in the middle of a dark city to find me. I was scared and almost blinded by the dark when I saw it, but as soon as I grabbed it I understood it would guide me back home.” – Marcela Bolivar
About the Artist: (Artist Bio)
I am a digital artist specialized in photomontage techniques. All my compositions are based in photographs that undergo a complex process of transformation, assemblage and detailing, bringing them closer to a pictorial expression.
‘Marcela Bolivar‘s photo illustrations have a light touch — the figures and surrounding flowers, plants and fabrics appear to billow in the wind, as if they might be blown away at any moment. Sticking to a mostly pale color palette, Bolivar gives her characters an elegant essence. We see them morphing and changing their shape to blend in with elements of nature, as if they behold mystical powers we can’t quite comprehend.’ – Nastia Voynovskaya (Hi-Fructose)
