Virginia Garcia Costa is an Argentinian artist based in Switzerland. Virginia produces wall sculptures inspired by elements of nature. The way Virginia arranges her materials into what looks like a surface of drips or water flow makes her wall sculptures' style truly unique. The different perspectives and the three dimensionality of the bark pieces give a peaceful sense of harmony and modern aesthetics. When viewed slightly askance, the perpendicular lines give the piece a fresh sense of three-dimensionality. Public and private collectors in Europe, the US, Canada, Asia and Middle East have bought her work.
A magnificent forest near home inspires me on my work. Just like in nature, every little piece is important for the entire artwork. I choose and prepare them gently. I make my works with care and love at every step.
