This photographic series is inspired by a photograph taken by the Hubble Space Telescope of the interstellar gas and dust in the Eagle Nebula some 7,000 light years from Earth that is entitled Pillars of Creation. It is a place where stars are born and simultaneously eroding by the light of nearby stars. Almost every element of earth was formed at the heart of a star. Our bodies are remnants from the bursting of these beautiful crystals of light. My fascination with the study of astrology, meta and quantum physics which have been influential in her life and creative process.
The series Pillars of Creation is an exploration of consciousness and the ever-expanding world of the universe within. Magical worlds are created through explosions of ink in water. Through the negative space, vibrant textures emerge organically. Similar to life, each image is a mystery unfolding, only to be revealed in the present moment.
"Like the empty space in the galaxy, I've been dying and re-birthing out of darkness into the light of new beginnings".

Multi-media artist Javiera Estrada was born in Mexico in 1981 and moved to the United States in 1989. Her childhood was heavily influenced by her training in classical piano and violin, which continues to inspire her aesthetic today. She attended Santa Monica College and received her Certificate of Photography in 2009. Estrada’s broad scope of work is a reflection of memories that she has shaped into her reality. A seeker of the spiritual, Estrada believes that every piece of art created is a self-portrait, a physical expression of that inner nameless world our soul inhabits. Using photography as her main visual medium, the sound of the camera's click offers her the perfect confluence between the real and the ethereal. A multifarious artist, Estrada’s creative expression encompasses traditional photography, mixed media, sculpture, installation, and film.
Estrada has exhibited in galleries in the United States, Europe, and Asia. Her work is part of private and corporate collections internationally. In 2014 she won Art Slant’s Juried Competition, was a 2015 finalist for the Emerging Focus Competition, and is the 2017 winner of the ND Awards Fine Art Category. Estrada made her first short film in 2017 entitled, The Dream, which was selected in Best of Shorts at the Carmel International Film Festival. In 2020, her solo show in Las Vegas was awarded a Certificate of Special Congressional Commendation for the Arts from the United States Congress. Estrada currently lives and works in Los Angeles.
