Sandra Vásquez de la Horra

Press release

Sandra Vásquez de la Horra

Subtle and sensitive – these are attributes describing the works of Sandra Vásquez de la Horra. On the other hand, they can also be described as merciless, grotesque, and disturbing. They are pictures full of opposite emotions. Her works cannot be described as light art. The fact that she was born in 1967 in Chile, in the times of Pinochet’s reign of terror and torture, has had an impact on her art. The cultural legacy of the artist includes stories of the indigenous peoples of Latin America, the history of Spanish colonialism in Central and South America, and the history of her family. Sandra Vásquez de la Horra seeks and finds freedom from this dense society through art and within art.
