Karla Carballar, It’s the kind of story I often told about myself, March 20 – May 20, 2014
The act of looking.
Even more, the act of observing.
The awareness of the present, light, temporality.
A ray of sun filtered through the tree outside the window and hitting a cracking wall.
A small, unassuming plant that’s growing again.
The fortunate combination of colors.
Wind, water, the everyday alive, mundane, unique.
