Lina Puerta is a Colombian-American NYC-based sculptor. She creates hybrid anatomical and botanical forms that capture the fragility of both nature and the body. Her recent work focuses on the process of decay in nature and also the wearing of layered surfaces over time. She creates works using a wide array of mixed media materials including found objects, fabric, reusable items, plants, and other natural objects. The unique qualities of color, texture, and form present in existing materials inform her creative process.
