METAMORPHOSIS

Carmen Parra’s paintings encompass all the meanings that butterflies have represented in our culture and, therefore, everything that draws us to them. In her paintings, she restores that figure, that mark or drawing with which all mythologies begin and which make things become atavistic for the human spirit. […] The motif of the Monarch butterfly is an allegory that allows us to understand the world and reflect on the relationship between humans and nature. The metamorphosis of the butterfly signifies the human aspiration to always seek the light, as well as the possibility of being reborn in new utopias or with new worldviews.
