Mexican Artist’s Sculptures at Saba Institute

A collection by Mexican artist Gabriela Z. Rodriguez is on display at Tehran’s Saba Institute of Culture and Arts till March 7, as part of special programs of the 8th Fajr International Festival of Visual Arts that concluded on February 27.
At the ‘Mexico Art Week’, Rodriguez presented her sculpture collection, composed of a number of lamps in different sizes and forms, Honaronline reported.
The series include 15 items, created from lamps, painted glass, recycled metal pieces and old bricks. “Each piece symbolically portrays human nature, and the light shining through the different materials symbolizes hope in the human heart,” the artist said.    
“One reason why I chose lamps to make sculptures was partly the ‘International Year of Light’ ceremony, which was held over three days from February 4 to 6, in Merida, Mexico.”
Every item in the collection spreads light, “which has a special meaning for me,” she said.
Rodriguez, 33, started her art as a child when she was 5 years old. She studied painting in the Arts School of the University of Guadalajara in Mexico but she discovered later that she loved sculpture more. Her works mostly are “super detailed” tiny sculptures, made in polymer clay which appear real.
