Pieces from our natural environment, elements which have completed their own cycle or have been hit by mother Nature, struck in the past by lightning and other weather conditions in their living environment.
In each piece those secrets finally daring to be told, revealing stories which connect us with our current world. A way of artistic expression that allows me to listen to the materials and natural elements I work with.
the energies I feel through the natural elements I work with, sharing their stories and secrets with those who are willing to be part of it, through the forms arising in each piece.
I´m Liliana Castillo, I grew up in Venezuela, a tropical country where green is the predominant color as well as the contrasts of degraded colors found in nature. Since I was a little girl, the world of art has been and still is my great passion; it is part of my life. This is why I studied and got my degree in graphic arts.
During half of my life I have lived in different countries. One of the cities that inspired me to enter this wonderful world of art was the city of Milan, where you can almost breath art and designs everywhere you go. I flourished in my artistic skills by taking various courses in art techniques.
Later, I rooted in Barcelona, a cosmopolitan city that characterizes for its rich artistic culture. I started working in interior design projects, where I applied the philosophy of Feng Shui. I strongly believe in the importance of connecting with nature and that we all must work on this connection to apply it in various ways on a daily basis.
This year of 2020 is full of new paths, new systems, and different seasons making their entrance and following the course of nature, without stopping. Yet the whole world did stop by a phenomenon called coronavirus, which made us think we lived in a bubble, where we were untouchable. The way to advance is to decide to wake up and burst this bubble, or to continue sleeping inside it, inside the comfort of our own structures. For me it has been a journey, a beautiful experience with sculpture. I have discovered in sculpting a way of artistic expression that allows me to listen to the materials and natural elements with which I work. I share their stories and secrets with those who are willing to be part of them, through the forms that arise in each of the pieces.
