About the work

This work is about a day of planetary alignment. I was very connected with this special moment – feeling the planets, Jupiter, Saturn, and the Sun’s influence on us. In my culture we are in constant communication with the stars, the planets, the Moon, and the Sun, they are in our life as in a dialogue.

About the artist:

Sandra Vasquez de la Horra was born 1967 Viña del Mar. Graduated from Visual Communications, University for Design, Viña del Mar (1994); and Postgraduate Studies, Kunsthochschule für Medien, Cologne (2003).

In order to explain my practice, it´s necessary to talk about alchemy and an experimental approach to drawing in three dimensionality – using architecture, installation and other formats. An ensemble which I pin to the wall, reminiscent of practices used in a Natural History Museum, an accumulation of drawings pinned like insects in an organic or geometrical form, each time makes a new improvisation that appears to look like a chaotic story board. My perception of space and dimensions have changed in the last few years, and I have begun to work in large format using cotton paper. I am now putting together a lot of different symbols, typography, and patterns, all of which mean something to me, like poetry, and takes me into another space where I identify better.

Maximum bids

You are more likely to be the winning bidder if at the outset you place a maximum bid i.e. the maximum amount you are willing to pay for the work. Your maximum bid is not visible to other bidders. If another bidder exceeds your maximum bid you will receive an automatic notification. If you have placed a maximum bid the auction site will automatically place bids on your behalf, but only as much is necessary to make sure that you remain the highest bidder, until it reaches your maximum bid. These automatic bids are placed in increments, as shown above.
