Pilar is a New Zealand-Spanish artist fascinated by nature and what hides behind it. Also a scientist, Pila studies the landscape for signs of prehistoric earthquakes. This enquiring into shape, texture, colour and the dynamism behind what to a naked eye could look like a soothing and static scene, is what inspires Pila. From the expanding universe to a tiny tree leaf, all is art, all is science.
Pilar works with different media and techniques, and particularly enjoys those that she doesn’t have full control on. The freshness and the surprise factor when working with mixed media, cold wax, ecoprint and watercolour fascinate her.
