Javiera Estrada

Javiera Estrada was born in Acapulco, Mexico. During her educational years, she was classically trained in piano and violin which continues to influence her aesthetic through visual lyricism. In conjunction, the artist’s vivid dreamworld has shaped memories into reality, impacting her imagination and fate.

The series, Pillars of Creation, is a photograph of the interstellar gas and dust in the Eagle Nebula some 7,000 light years from Earth. It is a place where stars are born and simultaneously eroding by the light of nearby stars.  Almost every element of earth was formed at the heart of a star.  Our bodies are remnants from the bursting of these beautiful crystals of light. Her fascination and study of astrology, meta and quantum physics has been influential in her life and creative process.  This new series is an exploration of consciousness and the ever expanding world of the universe within. Magical worlds are created through explosions of ink in water.  Through the negative space, vibrant textures emerge organically.  Similar to life, each image is a mystery unfolding, only to be revealed in the present moment.
