Mara Carver aka Carmen Berasategui
I am convinced that reading poetry since early childhood has caused this profound and idyllic consideration of the objects, nature, people and events that surround me. The constant search for beauty, material and conceptual contrast; the poetic feeling and the need to intensify the emotions through my use of music are essential stimuli in the development of my formal works.
I am very interested in recording images and scenes that allow visually poetic meanings to enter our daily lives. Because I strongly believe that art today plays a very beneficial – even necessary – therapeutic role in the local and global reality in which we live.
