Introduction: Dr. Jenny Graser, Kupferstichkabinett, Staatliche Museen zu Berlin
Berlin-based artist Sandra Vásquez de la Horra (born in Viña del Mar, Chile, in 1967) primarily creates medium- and large-format drawings (pencil and graphite) as well as mixed-media works on paper (watercolor and gouache), which she then immerses them in wax, resulting in a semi-transparent effect and a relief-like impression.
Increasingly she has been moving into the third dimension with accordion-folded or house-like objects produced in the same media. The layer of wax heightens the often surrealistic effect deriving from her pictures’ expressive depiction of figures and other motifs as well as their complex content.
