Anna María is a wonderful Puerto Rican artist. Her works depict alien-like creatures that combine human, animal and mechanical forms. Her creations often suggest that humans are at war with everything around them.
“I believe Peace is possible, I believe in common sense, I believe in Human Intelligence.
Human Being is in constant war with everything; nature, machines, time and himself.
In my work, I try to put the pieces together, so that every part of my surroundings can find peace. I empower my creatures with the ability to fix, change, or retract actions of war, pain, and conflicts that would change the history of a nation, an extinct form of living or a simple human being’s life.”
“I believe changes comprehend a specie’s environment as much as the specie inside.
I want to play with the act of abstinence in my work, creating beasts that can deprive of live at the minimal or inexistent provocation but they choose to stay still, they choose peace.
In my imagination, different dimensions of life and time collide to create characters with mixed phenotypes, animal, mechanical and human, functioning parallel to a story that I feel every second I spend on the process but only the spectator can tell.”
