La contemplación del jardín realizada por Corcuera rinde un homenaje a los nenúfares y flores del pintor francés Claude Monet, el artista más representativo del Impresionismo de mitades del siglo IXX. Con una minuciosa atención a los reflejos de la luz, los colores, las texturas del agua y el encuadre, Mariana utiliza las herramientas de la fotografía contemporánea para pintar con luz, obteniendo imágenes que recuerdan la técnica pictórica característica del óleo impresionista. Sumergida en piscinas, acompañada de flores y un vestuario que hace volutas, para realizar esta serie más que más que contemplar la belleza, se imagina inmersa en ella sin saber con certeza el resultado hasta terminar la toma, pues se trata de un autoretrato. El resultado son los momentos eternos propios de la pintura y la fotografía que nos permite dejar de ser centro de percepción para confundirnos con el flujo del espacio y el tiempo.

In 2016, I visited Maison Mougis in Normandy, where I captured the original photos that derived in these images. It is been said that Merlin the Wizard lived there. Every night, before going to sleep, I feel a little nervous, while I wait for a luminous dream or a dark nightmare to come. Both are exciting possibilities, probably because there is always some light in the nightmares and some darkness in dreams. Darkness attracts us, pulls us to see what does it hides. If during a nightmare we manage to overcome the fear and find outlets, we can find rather gratifying surprises: flashes of our own experiences that help us draw conclusions and positive resolutions; thus I find beauty in darkness, like the transformation of bitter to sweet. As in dreams, the proportions of the images in this photo series decontextualize the object, making it comprehensible only from a certain angle. Textures and colors allow us to go beyond the first plane, transcending the darkness to delve into images that evoke planets, volcanoes with craters, the surface of the moon or huge flowers suspended in the rough. They are what our dreams -or our nightmares- allow us to imagine. They are the light and the dark holding hands, because like we well know, one doesn't exist without the other.

Mariana Corcuera Bain

Mariana Corcuera Bain (Ciudad de México) holds a BA in Communication Sciences by the Iberoamericana University and a BA in photography by the Superior School of Image and Design at Barcelona, Spain

Her work has been exhibited at Madrid Foto Art Fair in 2010 and at the Mexican Stock Exchange Market House in Mexico City

In 2018 ALMANAQUE fotográfica presented her Project Room: Flowers, a series of eight photographs taken at the Maison Mougins, Normandy, France. With this series, Mariana Corcuera uses darkness as the frame in which flowers are portrayed in their extraordinary colors, to open a universe of possible symbolisms to the eye of the viewer.
