Catalina Sour Vasquez’s series Projets Dissolvants is the catalyst for what has become her own unique, surrealist style. Superimposing imagery that caters to the senses with her delicately designed mise en scene, while utilizing color and über surrealist elements, she allows the viewer to focus on one specific, if not subconscious, component of the photograph – often addressing the social impact of our mundane everyday lives and the toll that it infiltrates on our mental and physical well being. There are direct references, colors or details that placate to a specific smell, touch or often taste. She will shamelessly critique society’s tendencies for mass consumption utilizing a candy coated stage that is easy for us to digest…and almost impossible to resist.
This exhibition was organized for San Antonio’s Contemporary Art Month in 2018.
