Christina Cordero

Christina Cordero’s imagery arises from a highly personal realm, as she draws upon her past and current experiences, and translates these into a unique visual language.  Highly influenced by music and musical theory, her work is also characterised by the free association of ideas and interwoven narratives associated with Latin-American literature, known as ‘magic realism’. Consequently, her work at times suggests the romance of antique maps and folkloric illustration, underscored by the reality of dual histories.  Utilising a calligraphic line depicting arcane, artificial alphabets and symbols of the enduring reality of the natural world, Christina evokes the magic of the mythic in parallel with the everyday.
