Appearances of Nature
Vorja Sánchez tries to be alert to those forms, generally of organic constitution, that she finds in everyday life. In the notebook, she usually makes a quick note of the basic structure, or of how the different elements that share or inhabit the same space are connected. Later, she develops it in her studio.
“It is funny to play at giving an appearance to fauna and flora that a priori — rationally — they 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.”
