In her 2011 series Under The Roof, young Spanish artist Cristina del Campo responds to the space between where, through innovative spatial solutions a change in focus from the individual to the group occurs.
"My current artwork generally focuses on painting as a discipline, and depiction of various banal items related to everyday life as a theme. Following the completion of my doctoral research project at Complutense University of Madrid, titled "Absence and Presence in the Contemporary Still Life", the use of objects from contemporary life has become more prevalent. My interest in contemporary objects has been recently broadened by architectural structures adding a spatial aspect and a dimensional game to my art practice. The objects and structures I select are fragments of our environment that often go unnoticed. They interest me for various visual and conceptual reasons. I see them as isolated, out of context, mixed together and overlapping characters in this fictional reality."
