Lorena Camarena

Mexico, 1974


The plastic findings of Lorena Camarena (1974) are platonic acts for a theater in the world. Layer after layer, the painter builds scenarios in which time and space they provoke in their eyes the curiosity of the mystery of the suggested, of what we do not see but that our imagination tends to complete. Between curtains and realistic legs, their drawn silhouettes are the actors of the form and content that interpret a silent and ghostly spectacle. If Plato's cave illustrates a way of perceiving a limited and apparent reality, it also keeps within itself the promise of a certain objectivity, such as the paintings of the artist born in Mexico City.
