Amsterdam-based Dominican artist Julia Aurora Guzmán utilises mixed media to create sculptures and installations that play with scale and the audience’s perception.
The work ignites an imagination within spaces through the phenomenology of immensity. Guzmán creates active and conscious relationships between human, architectural and sculptural bodies.
The compositions are constructed to settle between the material’s logic and hers, balancing the industrial with the handcrafted through the aesthetics of geometry and tensegrity.
Guzmán’s solo exhibition How to Stand is on view at Mamey Galería in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, until 25 March. For more information, click here.
