MARIA TERESA GONZALEZ RAMIREZ
Mexico City, 1967
Born in Mexico City in 1967, she obtained a degree in Science of Communications and Public Relations, but her life radically changed when she decided to second her immense curiosity. The constant looking for emotions and adventure, and the ability of dreaming powerfully merge in Maria Teresa, providing her works with an intense emotional impact, which fills the audience with surprise and irony. The plain bulb is –according to the sculptress- the icon containing the idea of life itself. A humble object which gives us light and is thrown away at the end of its existence. Maria Teresa reuses it, single or in multitudes, redefining its own identity. It is amazing to observe how the simplicity of a shape, the one of a bulb in its more diverse dimensions, can represent emotions and thoughts, curiosity, smiles.
