Sandra Cordero Artist Statement

Using magazine clippings and layers of paper, I create collages with spatial depth that embody the whimsical ecosystem of Planet Sandra. When I set out to create new forms, I seek to understand the life drive of each. Delicate details, sinuous shapes, intricate hiding places and delusional characters make up the scene of that planet that orbits in my mind. When I work with recycled materials from our culture, which in themselves are a filter of reality, I like to think that my creations become living palimpsests, born from the exercise of devouring images.
