Defying Gravity – The Universe of Cinta Vidal Agulló
In her paintings, Barcelona based artist Cinta Vidal Agulló creates a universe in which the traditional laws of gravity do not hold. She discovered her love for art at a young age, studied at Escola Massana in Barcelona and worked in one of the most prestigious scenography ateliers in Europe.
Cinta’s work incorporates architectural and landscape elements to build three-dimensional mazes in which her characters wander, often unaware of those around them. Challenging our notions of perspective, her artworks are conceived as metaphors of how individuals might be close to each other, yet have completely divergent viewpoints and ideas.
In her own words: “With my constructions, I want to show that we live in a world, but that we live in different ways – playing with everyday objects and spaces. The inner dimension of each of us does not correspond to the mental structure of those around us.”
