b. 1980, Santiago, Chile
Cecilia has been exhibiting her work in Chile and internaitonally since 2002, after graduating in Visual Art and Photography at the University of Chile. Her most recent series include digital post-production experimentations with photography. Cecilia merges photographs and portraits into artificial or surreal beings that are constructed from elements of different real people. In a way, she is conceptually creating new identities. These images secured a National Fund FONDART prize and second place in the art contest “Artists of the XXI Century”, organized by the Pontifical Catholic University of Chile and Banco Santander. She currently lives and works in Santiago.
Puerta Roja presents the works of Cecilia Avendano in Hong Kong in partnership with Isabel Croxatto Gallery, Santiago de Chile.
