This work can be hung vertically or horizontally.
It is her own body, the culmination of each ancestor before her, that Nuñez Rojas uses in her art. Channelling her feelings into dance as they nudge her to paint with her body, she steps inside a white space, to draw curves and lines around her being, until the fluid and undulating marks she makes make no sense at all, and complete sense at the same time. It is an ode to that dance of freedom her enslaved ancestor first stepped, and through her dance of art, as she spins with ghosts, she arrives, full circle, freeing herself by movement, to create a piece.
It is not only the landscape of her body that is present in her paintings, but the landscapes of her homes; you can see the mushroom-coloured mountains of Chile, the desert ochres of Arizona, and the blue, blue sea of the Pacific Ocean, the exact colour of her homesickness.
