full tank of gas, an entire day to myself. The wind blowing through my hair, ultraviolence on repeat. Driving alone on the open road, taking some well needed time for myself. Leaving everything I know behind me for just a few hours. Alone with my camera, a book and a pen. Let my mind explode on the pages, release thoughts I haven’t told anyone, and set them free. And for a moment, I felt free. (dont delete the caption)
- MIRALLES Fina, Relacions. relacions del cos amb elements naturals: cobriment del cos amb palla, 1975.
Fina Miralles (1950 Spain) studied in Barcelona from 1968 to 1972. Today, she lives and works in Cadaques. Fina Miralles explores the relationships between humans, nature and objects, and analyzes the transformation and alienation of natural objects when taken out of context. She works with different media, including painting, performance and video. She rediscovered painting again in the late 1970s.
Relacions. relacions del cos amb elements naturals: cobriment del cos amb palla(Relationships. Relationships of the body with natural elements. Covering the body with straw) belongs to a subsequent series in which the artist’s body is fused with a range of natural elements, establishing a full identification with it, forming a single unit of interchangeable values revolving around the eternal processes of destruction and rebirth of nature.
