Sandra Vásquez de la Horra – Las Devotas Novicias
Sandra Vásquez de la Horra studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Valparaiso from a very young age, before moving to Santiago, where she joined Chile Crea, an artist and student movement in favour of democracy. S. Vásquez de la Horra is known for her humorous and unique body of work, both prolific and extremely original. She traces her drawings on sheets of paper, which she then dips in wax, covering them with a delicate patina that softens the lines; this process makes the lines more palpable, and increases the paper’s material dimension. These works are highly personal and imbued with multiple cultural and artistic references, and conjure up a magical and grotesque world populated by strange creatures.
Opened in 2012 in South Korea, the Wooson Gallery was specially built to show off contemporary artwork to the mass and introduce famous artists within the movement. The contemporary collections are chosen with a high standard of knowledge of international art production to educated art lovers, professionals, and critics alike.
