‘Soplo’ is the result of my artist residency in Casa Voa, Rio de Janeiro in December 2018.
I was given freedom to create anywhere within the common spaces in Casa Voa. Completely moved by the lush nature in Rio de Janeiro I chose to work in their outdoors space. I brought some of the spirits of the rain forest to shape on murals on their walls and in little clay figures I placed around the garden. These figures acting as a bridge between the city and the natural forces, reminding humans of the wisdom and power that lies within nature.
