Yolanda Gutiérrez

Studio work

This is a selection of other mixed media work by Yolanda Gutiérrez linking bones, fish netting, flight and poetic imagery to explore the range of human impact on nature in Cozumel, Mexico:

"Virgin Tears" of chlorinated sterile water float in glass spheres in a pond, asking, "What do we regard as holy?"

Hooks and fishing line, bones and coastal flotsam become insects, birds and flowing forms creating a sense of predatory movement, loss and the ghostly echoes of organic cathedrals by the sea. The overlapping worlds of nature culture, religion and livelihood are woven into Gutiérrez's art and remain firmly grounded in a sense of place.
