Sandra Vásquez de la Horra
Una Isla en el Cielo
Sandra Vásquez de la Horra, who was born in Viña del Mar in 1967, is a Chilean artist who mainly draws. She works in both coloured and graphite pencil, often on utility papers that seduce viewers into strange, fantastic worlds. Characteristic for the artist is that her works, after being finished, are covered with a liquid wax layer. The drawings thus looking like objects have a parchment-like quality and seem strangely removed, reinforcing the surreal, partially grotesque content of the images.
