Lucia Ferreira , is a uruguayan visual artist who now lives in Southern California. She utilizes photography as a material and a process to build fictional stories that are grounded in reality. She believes that there is much more fiction in reality than we allow ourselves to discover, it is all about “how we see”.
With her camera, she collects characters, plots, settings and moods. Some of them appear by chance, others she stages. It is in her digital darkroom where the different pieces of the story fuse to create dreamlike realities. Her images hold an invitation to wonder.
She puzzles over concepts of introspection, playfulness, lightness of being, spirituality and curiosity. She generates compositions that are tranquil, spaces where we can feel peaceful, at easy and where we can let our imagination run wild.
