We will become fossils
By H. Le Vasseur & J.Tomamichel
“We Will Become Fossils” is the title for Maya Anastasia’s first exhibition at Kuro Gallery at La Fabrica la Aurora from July 5 through July 20. Jules Verne was born in 1828, 185 years ago. His writings, inventions and predictions are still revered. Maya was introduced to his work when her high school geology teacher insisted the class watch every cinematic version of Journey to the Center of the Earth. This introduction compelled Maya to read the great works of Jules Verne. Thus she began to transform Verne’s words, such as his haunting phrase, “Now we are fossils…” into images that move from surrealism to reality. Although Maya’s first love is photography, she is currently studying painting and printmaking with Mario Oliva and Gerardo Ruiz. Her work demonstrates her fantastic control of each medium as well as her wonderful imagination. In the brief time she has studied these art forms, Maya has compiled a collection that expresses her profound personal connection with fantasy and the impossible.
Maya Anastasia was born in San Miguel, but now lives part time in California. She hopes to study fine art someday and become a teacher like those who have influenced her so greatly.
