Aurora Passero’s work exists in the space between painting and sculpture. Embracing textile techniques like weaving, braiding and dying, Passero creates a new experimental form using materials such as nylon, rubber and acrylics. Transformed within the context of the space, the works become signifiers of a physical language where the contrasting textures open up new visual and tactile experiences.
Passero`s work is the result of a broad interest in social and cultural expressions found in popular and underground culture, art history, craft and other ethnological material.
