PHotoESPAÑA - The Goma

Cristina Garrido
El color es un invento extranjero
Individual exhibition – PHotoESPAÑA
Municipal Hall «Las Francesas» Valladolid.

Cristina Garrido explores the historical relationship between painting and geography and considers how our relationship with the landscapes in which we grow up shape our way of being in the world. Inspired by the celebrated quip by Jorge Luis Borges, ‘Local colour is a foreign invention’ [it emerges from others looking at us, not from what we are], Garrido questions the possibility of discovering a place’s true local colour.
