Her oeuvre explores space and time as concepts covering what we call ​reality, ​becoming a process of abstract landscape experimentations. Cortés makes an approach to a direct knowledge of our surroundings, to disarticulate them in fragments, as elements of a immaterial space. In her series ​Aforismos Visuales ​(2011 - 2017), ​the photography, instead or being a mimetic instrument, is more a glance’s analog tool to register and construct an alternate reality which disappears to the view and can only stay in the image. Over time, her work has become a visual depuration to remove and remove elements; at first on the architecture, then on the body and landscape, and finally in the minimalists forms of the space. “I think on the photographic process as the dematerialization of the captured space, which once materialized again in a new image, nevers came back the same. This very decomposition is something new that maybe does not have a name yet. The real space only manifest itself for an instant, when it loses its referent, before the connotations and the denotations.”
