Jessica Backhaus

Far away but close

"Presence, image, and suggestion: art's sacred trinity is embodied with such generous concentration in these images by Jessica Backhaus, who we as Chileans should thank for making so exquisitely visible, what we are too distracted to notice. The power of the color that portrays and crowns the subject, provokes the sensation that we are seeing something we see every day but haven’t actually seen before.”

From the introduction by Antonio Skármeta
