Nature Uncovered

Lina Puerta is a Colombian-American artist who lives in NYC and creates sculptures in mixed media assemblage, using clay, resins, wood, found objects, artificial and live plants set within vintage suitcases of varying sizes. Via her website: "Inspired by the physical commonalities within nature and the human body, I create hybrid anatomical and botanical scenes that evoke surreal, magical worlds. I am interested in the spiritual oneness and interconnectedness of body and nature as one living force, as well as, its inherent menacing and destructive power."
