Adriana Mosquera's photographs speak of modern-day urban encounters with the surrounding environment. Scenes, people, trends, shapes, environments, and objects, are set in new illustrative contexts which clearly illustrates an attentiveness to what surrounds the artist and the extra meaning that these things can take. Presented here are selections from 3 different portfolios: Enlightened/Iluminados, Urban Icebergs/Icebergs Urbanos,
and Out of Frame/Fuera de Campo.
, there are a variety of scenes in which humans are transfixed by screens emitting light. The isolation, even when people are together, is palpable. The series Urban Icebergs/Icebergs Urbanos
explores the surreal forms of inflatable structures and their prevalence (often going unnoticed) in our urban environments. Out of Frame/Fuera de Campo
explores a basement storage facility and the dynamic relationships that can occur in photographs among inanimate objects.
In each series, by making the ordinary extraordinary, the artist reminds the viewer that if we take a moment to look, we can see our modern-day world in a new and fascinating light.
