Lisandra Isabel García (Havana, 1989) stands in front of a mirror, metaphorically speaking, and from there creates another world - balanced and harmonious to the emphasis - in which she (her recreated image) is the center and the pillar.
The works seem to avoid the artists realities, show plastic expressions of her fantasies and dreams; but they are strongly linked to her biography.
Lisandra's pieces "tell" a story, but conveniently "glamorized." She has said it several times: she wants to build a kind of ideal, parallel model, in which her emotions and her lyrical vocation are manifested.
It would be superficial to assume these self-portraits as a mere stylization strategy. The effort to transcend this area to influence the dynamics of what we call "reality" is remarkable.
Art, which is also part of that reality, opens windows and doors to a world of colors and shapes that is also palpable, even if it seems unbearable. If it influences us, it influences our context.
Lisandra is definitely committed to the usefulness of beauty. Hers is an exercise of conscious exposure: she puts us in front of her recreated intimacy so that we value the importance and the need to dream, to fantasize, to find beautiful spaces in our imagination where we can coexist.
