The work of Cynthia Gutierrez denotes a constant search for tensions that lie within concepts such as identity, memory, ruin, failure, history, and collapse. Through her practice she aims to question the established frameworks that condition our thinking and our actions. In an effort to break certain structures, dilute edges, push things to the limit, and twist or surpass borders, the impulse of her work springs from the awareness and analysis of context and memory. Her process usually stems from specific conflictive situations, from unstable and indefinite topographies where inherent vulnerability allows movement in multiple directions. By retrieving fragments that possess a particular historical weight, she attempts to re-articulate –from a different angle - their potential significance through visually attractive elements. Thus, she uses the deceiving nature of art as an instrument to alter the usual course of things. The result is sometimes a perverse reconfiguration where reality and fiction merge to reveal the inconsistencies and distortions of History.
