About the Artist

File 83530

Maria de la O Garrido (b. 1985) is a Spanish artist working in the intersection of photography, sculpture, collage, and recently video and performance art. When she first moved from Andalucía to London she worked as a life model to gain access to creative communities without a perfect command of English. Her practice draws from these early experiences, positioning objects and bodies - both her own and others’ - in situations that ask the viewer to renegotiate their perceptions. Her sculptural still life practice likewise reimagines common and unfamiliar objects in fantastical ways, like her series ‘Making Love with the Things I Hate’, where plastic household items are transformed into vases for flower arrangements. She currently lives and works in London.
