Milagros Arias

MILAGROS ARIAS SECADA (PERU, 1984)
Her artistic work is intimately related to Nature and Natural Landscape. Milagros collects materials found during walks and trips, reinforcing this creative process with mappings, drawings, photography, writing, collages and videos and she processes these materials to cover the technical needs for her sculptures and installations. She has a great interest in the cosmovision of the ancestral Peruvian cultures and their traditional artistic techniques.
