In her series Transicionales, artist Marcela Cárdenas explores the relationship between the organic shapes found within the natural kingdoms of fauna and minerals. The glass geode sculptures above are filled with animal fur, while in the image below, fur is trapped between a backing and a piece of glass with a reverse painting. I’m appealed by how my eye is misguided to believe the image as 2-dimensional, but the flat paintings overlaid on the detailed fur creates such texture.
