(excerpt from the introduction by Raul Córdula)

The Rites of Christina

…  So I couldn’t help but think about the feminine universe that emanates from the objects created by this serene artist

who moves in search of secrets and mysteries. Reoccurring subjects in her work, lips and hearts suggest a path

inward, penetrating through the lips down to the heart’s cavern, the full-empty core, the feminine heart impregnated

with desires, where her most profound being inhabits, the one that exists before it is born and will keep living after


It is similar to mountains, what we search in them lies innermost: the cavern, the mountains’ heart.

Through the lips we learn to live, but in the cavern we learn to die while we are alive and to stay infinitely still, in sync

with the absolute, as our hindmost destiny is to be born and to die eternally.
