Chelita considers that “Nature is the greatest and incomparable work of art", therefore she created a symbolic metamorphosis from an inert product into a "living" sculpture. This sculptures, thanks to the reflection properties of this metals, blend into the surrounding environment and shine under the sun rays and some of them move with the wind.
Chelita's works are an expression of the spirit and spirituality of Mexico, the country of origin of the artist and architect. Nature, the feeling of freedom, mythology, legends, femininity and spirituality inspired her works, which can now be admired in two museums in Italy and Mexico.
SCULPTURES IN 2 MUSEUMS:
- MUSEO PAPALOTE in Mexico City
- JEWISH MUSEUM in Casale Monferrato, Italy
SCULPTURES IN PUBLIC PLACES:
- Porto Rotondo at the Costa Smeralda in Sardinia, Italy
- Rome, at the Mexican Embassy, Italy
- Treviso, at the Winery: 47 Anno Domini, Italy
- Bolzano, at Palais Campofranco, Italy
Chelita's sculptures are inspired by nature, freedom, femininity, mythology and spirituality. Each art work is unique in the sense that she does not produce multiples. They are made of stainless steel, polished stainless steel, corten steel and colorless, anodized, polished and hammered aluminum plates. She turns these different sized plates into sculptures by assembling the panels with bolts and rivets. Thanks to the total reflection properties of polished stainless steel and up to 98% of this polished aluminium, her sculptures reflect natural and artificial light, merging with the environment, taking on its colors as a reflection. The lightness of this aluminum allows some of her sculptures to move with the wind.
With these sculptures, Chelita wants to bring light and joy.
