ROSA SIERRA XOXO MOL
As a research based maker, I am fascinated with creating playful and meaningful experiences of familiarity. I unravel the obvious through an investigative process in which I decipher my chosen topic/object and question its use in everyday mainstream (western) culture.
I often refer back to iconic, universal items and use classic materials in order to evoke a sense of understanding while at the same time disorienting and confusing my viewer through the process of deconstruction, reconstruction and the alternation between recognisable and (seemingly)unrecognisable elements. As I guide my viewer through a renewed image of ‘the self evident’, I hope to spark a new sense of curiosity and invite everyone to reevaluate their current thoughts and become conscious of their standard perceptions and use of these items.
As my experimental, multifaceted work method and critical view takes me on a journey of rediscovery, I combine my knowledge of traditional craftsmanship with innovative thinking.
