Woman’s Portrait with Red Flowers by Catalina Vial / Cynthia Corbett Gallery

Catalina Vial began her artistic career in the world of engraving and book binding, two disciplines that greatly influence her current work as a ceramist aesthetically and in the way she assembles her pieces. In recent years Vial has dedicated herself completely to ceramics and has participated in numerous symposiums, exhibitions, exchanges and workshops in China, Turkey, Thailand, Philippines, Peru and Chile.

Vial’s work is an ode to this mestizo woman, who from the earth is able to start over and over again, raising villages, houses and children without looking back, without forgetting who she is and regardless of who she was. By joining and composing different pieces of porcelain, paper clay and stoneware, Vial represents the courage, beauty and dignity of women in the act of destroying and rebuilding themselves infinitely.

Latin America is made up of native communities, mixed with the leftovers of the European conquest, immigrants and slaves. Throughout Latin America history, the presence of women has always been half-silent, in a land where men set the rules. Due to this and other factors such as the nature of reproduction, social causes, environmental effects, human relationships and historical events, Latin women have developed resilience and the ability to reinvent themselves to survive.
