  • Glimmering like stardust, Ana Liz uses earthly elements of shells and sand to recreate the atmosphere of the cosmos. Wara translates to ‘star’ in English; it is the stars that show us that creation is much more extensive than we thought – for the artist, it is of a holy magnitude. Stars embody our wishes, hopes, destinies, and even, for some, our dispositions. The all-over composition of this work echoes an abstract-expressionist painting by Pollock or Newman, but adds to it a natural, textured element that was not present in these earlier works of art history.
