María JL Hierro

The creative process of María JL Hierro began from her concern to have the time to ponder and to question current human behaviors. The hurry, changes and interpersonal relationships are some of the themes that underpin her projects.

She proposes that what and how we think and relate to each other depends, in part, on the number of words that we hear, read and learn. She is interested in using words as weapons and armors, the intermediate layers and what lives between the lines, the dualities.

She analyzes the phrases and the words she coexists with, through a transformation and expansion of its initial concepts. Plays with the letters and a few self-imposed variables, such as color and position, to obtain a simple and direct visual poetry, known as tipoesía, simple and direct message in the mind of the observant.
