Me and some of my heroes

Natalia Ferber is a landscape and cloudscape painter, inquisitive photographer and object and machine builder who’s line of work is based on the idea that all possible alternate histories and futures are real, each representing an actual "world" (or "universe”)*.

The raw material for her work are images she captures travelling around the world (or around the corner) and mixing it into fantastic landscapes, when everyone is invited and welcome.  It is just like real life, only better. 

"My work is a response to what is surrounding us, the news, the human kind stupidity and brilliantness, and a way of canalize what I sometimes find extremely frustrating. I use irony as a way to express this frustration and avoid getting sick. I do not believe in aggressive art, you have enough with the news, so I try to translate it into a whimsical image that look innocent at first, but the message will enter in your subconscious and you will become a better person.

I create a parallel world, where no one ask you where you are from, there’s no borders, everyone is accepted and welcome (except for the bad guys)".

Natalia Ferber was born in Montevideo, Uruguay, during a dictatorship. She moved to Spain as a political refugee with her family where she spent her childhood before moving back to Uruguay as a teenager. She graduated with degrees in Architecture and Fine Art.

 

Her work has been exhibited and sold commercially through solo and group shows in Europe and America. Looking forward to expand into the other continents.
