About the work.

Rosario Varela's work generates out of a steady search for the enigmatic in a universe where the unexpected is a crucial element. Given her curiosity and passion for various mediums, her pieces may range from organic and gestural in style, which is inspired by and established in nature, to precise and organized relationships as her commentary on interdependence.

Beyond the subtlety and ambiguity of her abstract work, lies an organization that stems from her graphic design background as well as her appreciation of architecture, pattern and textile design.
