The work of Cristina Toledo (Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, 1986) is based on an interest in the transformation of the photographic image into a pictorial image. By modifying its nature, one can substantially change the relationship we establish with a representation and reactivate its capacity to transmit meanings or raise questions.
In a world full of visual stimuli, painting is a suitable mechanism to give a much more corporeal dimension to certain images among the overabundance of them that surrounds us. Within these parameters, Cristina's work consists of rescuing photographic material from any source and elaborating other representations that propitiate new readings. This initial compilation of images or groups of images begins by chance, by a fortuitous discovery while surfing the net or any other medium. Cristina develops series of photographs thematically related to each other, dealing with issues such as public and private memory, the representation of identity or the control mechanisms imposed through the visible.
