Compounded (a composite whole)
Created by, Naty Lopez-Holguin
For the last seven years, Naty Lopez-Holguin has mainly been working with tumble-dryer fluff – a commonly discarded material full of associations. Through material transformation, the soft fluff becomes solid; layers upon layers where the short fibres interlink, pulling as they dry, forming an always changing outcome. The wall-mounted sculptures explore issues of worth and value through labour-intensive processes, and the use of everyday materials, while navigating a feel for space or lack of it. They are small and light in weight, fragile and slow. Using materials to convey points of human experience interest her, simultaneously instigating associations and interpretations. https://www.instagram.com/natylopezholguin
