This exhibition presents sixteen canvases, painted between 2022 and 2023, in multiple formats, whose readings cover the different paths of the artist. When carefully observing the works, they have the effect of a mirror that does not reflect the physical appearance but the intimate desire for transformation, like a travel diary. Soko investigates self-referential processes from the perspective of a migrant Latina woman in a globalized world. She develops the intersection of nature and language, as two inherent forms of Eastern philosophy, delving into “hidden” places of the human mind and using her art as a living form of subjective representation of reality.*
