MARIA GABRIELA LEON PAEZ GARCIA

Deep into that darkness peering, long I stood there, wondering, fearing, doubting, dreaming dreams no mortal ever dared to dream before.

– Edgar Allan Poe

There's a famous expression that reads

l'here enter Chien et loup. It stands for that time of day between dusk and nightfall, a time where the light makes things difficult to see and to decipher. A shift from the known to the unknown, from the tame to the wild – a perpetual sense of ambiguity that carries on into the darkness.

Perhaps it is the obscurity of nature that intrigues us; not everything has to be what it appears to be, at least not during the hour of transition: twilight. This moment is what became the underlining inspiration for my work, the eerie but otherworldly lighting that merged the line between fact and fiction, between life and death.
