Pilar Pequeño

Madrid, Spain, 1944

From an early age he begins an intense relationship with drawing, later he begins to work with photography. All your projects are related to nature.

He has work in important public collections such as Reina Sofia, the TEA of Tenerife or the IVAM of Valencia ...

He has exhibited his work in Museums such as The National Art Gallery of China. Beijing, Mahmoud Khalil Museum. Cairo, National Museum of Art of Catalonia. Barcelona ... In 2018, on the occasion of the 200 years of the Prado Museum, Twelve photographers at the Prado Museum are invited to participate in the project, which culminated in an exhibition at the Museum.

In 2010, she was awarded by the Ministry of Culture with the Gold Medal for Merit in Fine Arts. In 2017, he received the National Live Culture Award in its XXVI Edition. and in 2019 the PHE 19 award, Bartolomé Ros for the best Spanish professional career in photography.

From my first works on the landscape to my last photographs of still lifes, water and light are the two most representative elements of my work. This importance can be seen in the development of my work on plants that begin with greenhouses 1984-1990. where the plants are shown veiled by the plastic covered with dew early in the morning. The approach is similar in the design of the work, the images are taken from a very close point, affected by their surroundings. A photograph can be the beginning of a new research path. Thus, I take the plants to my study and create still lifes. always using natural light. the advantage is that I can modify the light by sieving it and modifying it with plastics and other elements creating my own light scene. Until reaching the submerged plants where the light plays with two translucent elements the crystal and the water.
