Nature is reborn at the hands of Patrícia Barrachina, who transforms flora into fauna with her magic and creativity. Renéixer is the Catalan word for “reborn”, reborn and also the name of the wines from an ecological winery in El Priorat, whose labels have been designed by Patrícia Barrachina ( patossa ). Following the philosophy of the winery at face value and honoring the name of the wines that they label, the illustrator, designer and artist has created a series of images of bugs formed from found objects, which have become the image of each of the wine varieties of the production.
Still life turned into fauna 1 A ladybug, a bee (an essential photo retouching service species for the pollination of the vineyards) and a somereta (a grasshopper native to the area) are the protagonists of these illustrations created by hand and photographed by Patossa herself. To build these insects, the first thing she did was walk through the vineyards, in search of the essential raw material for the construction of their delicate bodies. Once she had filled a box with “rubbish” from the field and after exhaustive research on the anatomy of the protagonists of the labels, she got to work shaping the insects. In the video found above these lines, he shares the entire process of creating the tiny figures, created from vine leaves, delicate dried flowers twigs.
The body of the ladybug is made of a reddish-colored vine leaf and its head is a kind of padlock found in the cellar; the bee is made up of different natural elements assembled one to another and crowned by the fruit of a cypress that acts as a head; the somereta, meanwhile, is created from legumes, twigs and dried flowers. This is not the first time that Patrícia Barrachina has played at creating from found or apparently discarded objects. Her portfolio is a reflection of her nonconformist and creative spirit. Everyone can be Frida, Camila Fontenele’s photographic project 05/07/2018 This photographic project celebrates strength and empathy through the figure of Frida Kahlo. Brazilian photographer Camila Fontenele met Frida’s work in college and first fell in love with her colors, only to later realize the tremendous spiritual connection she felt with the artist, with her story.
