I cover and re-cover the mistakes
I sort, match and align the shapes and colours
I repeat forms in rows, in columns
I scrape and repair
Inspired by childhood memories, Constanza's artistic production aims to show the beauty of the mistake, to explore repetition and process. She works with the juxtaposition of colours and textures, and endless superposition of them on many layers. Layers that together tell a story behind.
She invites you to submerge into this colourful world of imperfections.
Originally from Southamerica, her work has been selected for important group, solo shows and galleries across New Zealand, Chile and Argentina.
At present she lives with her family in Papamoa where works from her home studio.
