Opening Reception for Cristina Toro: Strike a Match to Hear My Sound

This new body of work addresses natural and supernatural phenomena related to fire and light. The inspiration for these works began in Toro’s kitchen, where she experienced the phenomenon of luminous plasma causing ionization of air particles and creating a glowing light, or Saint Elmo’s Fire. This work is not only influenced by Toro’s own research into rituals surrounding warmth, light and nourishment, but also by the history of related images.
