Gisela Romero is interested in the laws and mysteries of nature and its connection to humankind. Her drawings are based on the observation of earthly forms, the marks that people make on the world, and the interpretation of the principles that order the cosmos. She is inspired by the beauty of shapes in nature, natural and fabricated patterns, and brain network configurations, creating a unique and personal visual vocabulary.
A garden is a very important and appreciated place. It is a space to escape to, either at home or in a public setting. It is a place to contemplate or to plant an orchard or enjoy the sounds that inhabit it.
A garden is a parenthesis, that place to sit, set aside and stop time, smell a flower, feel the present, and breathe deeply.
There are many kinds of gardens and the word GARDEN has been used many times in novels, movies, works of art, places like a “Jardín de Infancia” where children laugh and jump and shout.
Gardens range from private gardens with herbs on an apartment terrace and central gardens of a house. Public gardens open onto public roads and large city parks that serve as a break from daily life, away from the noises of city hustle and bustle.
There are gardens where people who do not know each other, share a natural space together. There are other gardens where pets play and lovers reveal their mutual feelings.
There are also gardens that are labyrinths, spaces where it is easy to enter, and difficult to leave.
There are spiritual gardens, those that are built for meditating and praising nature. There are vertical gardens, scented green walls that serve to calm the voracious motion of contemporary life.
A garden is a special place where we place our various emotions and share with nature, time, and space, apart from daily life. It is a place to stop, and look up at the sky to observe that a bird flies fast to catch up with its distant flock."
