Donde hubo fuego montañas quedan

Donde hubo fuego montañas quedan is project  that turned into an exhibition in 2019. I began with these series of embroidered pieces  after an intense break up. I was thinking about how some people just vanish out of your life and at the same time remain.  The response to the pain I felt  was to contemplate hugeness, I was feeling small. I once read that one only sees a mountain as an obstacle only if you choose to see it like such. I decided to climb up the mountain and then look down.
