BALTIC Artist’s Book Fair – Gloria Ceballos, Marie Marcano, Paper & Theresa Easton

13 Jun

“My work is a metaphor of fragility, reflecting about subtle things and the importance of
what is small, delicate, and many times imperceptible based in my personal experiences when in the
presence of nature or about human relationships. I express experiences that are not individual,
but universal and, therefore, common to all of us.
I render this thoughts on my work on paper, sewing all the information together taking
advantage of the fragility of the media, subtly working its surface, suggesting a feeling of stillness
and overwhelming,not only in the form of prints, but also in paintings and drawings,personal
interventions as installations.” Gloria Ceballos
