Starting in the 1990s, Teresa Pereda’s art has been focused on the earth as material and on its real, symbolic and imaginary meanings. Earth as origin, point of reference, belonging and sociocultural origin. Myths and ceremonies, geography and history, celebrations and journeys are implicit or explicit in her work. Her art goes beyond mere information and image to give rise to sense experiences. Instance of the committed expansiveness that, for so long now, has set this artist in motion. While she proposes an expansion of consciousness capable of changing those who experience it.
“I am moved by the intention to establish a system of communication not strictly verbal or visual, but one more profound, intimate and direct. A state of being and feeling the world and its energy that is transformed by the possibility of sharing an action. Here, the work favors a space of movement and reflection whose anticipatory nature sets off desires and shared intentions, and sketches possible futures”
