Mexican artist Karla Castillo is interested in the deconstruction of landscapes such as the forest and the sea. She blends photography, drawing and painting, in order to create dialogues that project the on-going conflict amongst nature, space and mankind. The forest, one of her prime subjects, reflects a whimsical place where the presence of quietness and movement nurture a silent and melodious reigning environment.
Karla holds a Degree in Plastic Arts from ENPEG (Escuela Nacional de Escultura, Pintura y Grabado) La Esmeralda, Mexico City. A Visual Arts Masters Degree on Photography Discipline from San Carlos, Universidad Autónoma de México. Her work has been selected at the 2017 Kunstnernes P¬âskeudstilling (The Artists Spring Exhibition) Contest – KP Spring 17, Kunsthal Ârhus, Denmark. She was awarded for two consecutive years (2007-08/ 2010-11) with the FONCA Young Creators Scholarship in Photography Discipline. She obtained an Honorific Mention in the 2007 Sylvia Pawa Third Drawing Biennial, and finalist position at the 2005 DEMAC Photography Contest (Documentación y Estudios de Mujeres, A.C.).
