The woven and constructed forms included in this show by the artist Fabiola Alvarez Yurcisin are synergies of long abandoned technologies and craft-based techniques. Meticulously constructed using residual materials that include audio cassette and VHS tape, her work transforms these objects into inventive forms that belie their origins as refuse. Largely minimalist in her approach to color and form, Fabiola is interested in creating a visual relationship to nature through works saturated with man-made materials.
Born in México City, México, Fabiola lives and works in Playa del Carmen and Bethesda, Maryland. She received her BFA from The Art Institute of Chicago in Chicago, Illinois in 2003. She has participated in a solo show at Paseo del Carmen in Quintana Roo, Mexico in 2007 as well as a group show at Hardcore Art Contemporary Space in Miami, Florida.
