Elvira Carrasco

Elvira uses her hands, her fingers to cover her own face with different paints.

She creates her own ritual, like our distant ancesters used to do, like some may tribes still do.

She works alone. Far from everyone. Distant from humankind. She prepares herself and she meditates. She is afraid. But at this precise moment the energy comes and floods her body. Then the work flows with no more hesitations or doubts.

She makes sketches, takes notes. There is always an idea that can be useful tomorrow. And she continues.

After the painting, a photo is taken. Elvira photographs herself. She registers her work.

Elvira discovered her own way to communicate with others - using her own face as a canvas is her purpose.
