Sofía Fernández Díaz is a multidisciplinary artist from Mexico City whose painting, fiber sculptures & installations seek to uncover the relationships between unrelated objects. Her intimate knowledge of both ancient & modern processes allows her to find commonalities between various materials (beeswax, fibers, natural dyes, glass, beads) through a combination of experimentation, intuition & play. Her familiarity with naturally occurring patterns & formations allows her to recreate these systems in her work, forming an immediate, visceral connection with her audience.
