Ceramics - cerámicas

In parallel to this thesis I did a series of over fifteen paintings and ten ceramic pieces. I decided to do painting and ceramics because they are the most popular artistic expressions within the Shipibo – Conibo.

The series of ceramics are more abstract. They are part of an installation about how different aspects of life affect us. The images on the ceramic pieces each represent a different aspect such as: the people around us, our genes, our homes, our food, our natural world. All the ceramics pieces are plate shaped and are placed on red dirt specially brought from Pucallpa ("Pucallpa" in quechua means red dirt and it’s the color of most of the Ucayali region). The plates were placed in the dirt and actually look like puddles when I cover them with water. The dirt also symbolizes the people that live in this land. The idea was that the images painted on the ceramics are like the water that slowly filters through the ceramic and affects the dirt. What the images represent also affects each person that lives in this land.
