Sandra Vasquez de la Horra

Sandra Vásquez de la Horra’s works are populated by a diverse cast of female characters – nuns and seductresses, mothers and outcasts.

Best known for her drawing skills, Sandra Vásquez de la Horra also works in the medium of sculpture. However, it is the short distance between thought and paper that has turned out to be the work method best suited to her desire to create a strangely familiar yet at the same time uncanny universe.

Typography is a key element in Sandra Vásquez de la Horra’s works. Placed in the foreground or distributed across the entire page, the written word is granted an importance beyond literal meaning or grammatical correctness, making it an integral, sometimes even dominating part of the image.

Sandra Vásquez de la Horra, born 1969 in Viña Del Mar, Chile, lives and works in Berlin, Germany. She has been collaborating with BORCH Gallery & Editions since 2012.
