Sofía López Mañán
lives in Buenos Aires, Argentina


Every garden holds secrets. A person that seeks not be seen, an anonymous by night and day. We hide from ourselves, from our own fears.

A girl covered by a fur coat, shrouded in bell shaped leaves. Individuality remains veiled and insoluble.

Wallpaper of trees, rectangular and circular patterns.

Indoors in silence, uninhabited by the forgotten, once lost.
On a rock a piece of meadow covered by flowers, on it two figures absorbed in each other.

A suicide held.

Trees, stairs, private obsessions.
The room seems still, set in space, petrified in its ornament.

Surfaces polished in colour. Allegories and desires.

—Laeticia Mello
