Working through the weight of identity, Carolina Alamilla uses colors and a sense of playfulness to engage with the viewer. Alamilla steps away from the real and creates objects that lose their functionality but are a metaphor for hope, memory, and the environment. Using hand building and mold-making ceramic skills, Alamilla produces multiples that lead to altered scenes of everyday life.
