Natalia Villanueva Linares
"She makes every moment of her life an instant of creation.
Nothing escapes her metamorphic ability - her intention to instill poetry in ordinary situations of life. All possible materials are transformed by her effort into pure energy. Sometimes concrete, real, as it's the case for her cut up bedroom, sometimes poetic, sometimes imaginary, like in the case of the honey pots that contain hair bunches. Relics of lovers? Mournful souvenir? Perverse collection? Everything depends on the decor."
Jean de Loisy
Director of Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Beaux Arts de Paris
Text from the Catalogue of the exhibition "Le Vent d'apres"
Palais des Beaux Arts de Paris.
"What characterizes Natalia is her love to undertake ambitious art projects and it is, without doubt, one of the great strengths of her work. This goal often requires a great deal of organization that can take different forms. This may involve the gathering of diverse people around a project or in a substantial collection of the same material. However, the key elements that emerge from the work are organizing the exchange, the perseverance, and it’s generosity."
Artist & Doctor in History of contemporary Art & Brother in Arts of Mine
"We often experience in the work of Natalia exhausted materials, e.g. ashes, powders, and other dusts running through her works, so many traces of objects she will not let us see. Her exhibition entitled mysteriously the "High Pitch Sisters of the Great Colorial" does not escape these constant presentations, oscillating between revelation and concealment..."
"... Natalia is probably a sorceress, one who cut silk before your eyes prior returning them, whole...leaving the unwinding endless."
