About City in Flux (Work in Progress)
Sometimes it feels as though every time you turn around a new high-rise has sprung up - the skyline is in constant flux. Cranes and construction workers dance a carefully choreographed ballet. Honking and beeping signal our “progress.” City planners are limited by deadlines, mountains, and money, but artists are free to do what developers can only dream of—move, reshape, and multiply buildings. Cities in Flux (Work in Progress) celebrates the people who carry the weight of expansion on their backs, juxtaposed with a complete disregard for reality in urban design.

Carolina de la Cajiga refers to herself an illusionist or a re-interpreter rather than a photographer or a painter. Her approach to art is a balance between reality and imagination – what you see is not what “is”. Her work is not restricted to the borders of a flat canvas or image. She does not follow trends, or stay on the same path. Her work continuously evolves around one goal – to produce harmonious, exciting work.

“I love to experiment. I push myself to find different ways to express my ideas; to bring life to my inner thoughts. I move back and forth between different works, subject matter and materials. On the surface, this may seem unrelated, but everything is connected through the sensuous handling of the form.”
