Marifer Barrero, Mexico City, Mexico, b. 1981

Marifer (María Fernanda Barrero Ademe) was born in Mexico and received a BFA Cum Laude from the Universidad de Monterrey in 2004. Then in 2008 she completed her MFA in Sculpture at the Slade School of Fine Arts, University College London, UK.

Barrero’s creative work is interdisciplinary, but concentrates on drawing and sculpture. The predominant material in her artwork is paper, which she uses to encase and construct realities that introduce viewers to “experiences of light, whiteness, and spatial containment”. “I use sculpture to examine how our perceptual experiences and our spatial sense of self connect us to the network of life. My tools are the monochrome, color, silence, light, and the containment of space. My motifs are everyday objects such as books or chairs, enclosed spaces, everyday observations, plants, landscapes, stars, the earth and the sky, dawn and dusk.” – Marifer Barrero

Barrero’s work is found in many collections, including: Universidad de Monterrey, Monterrey, Mexico; the Latino Museum in Omaha, NE; the Instituto Tecnológico de Monterrey, Monterrey, Mexico; and the Oxford Town Hall Gallery, Oxford, England.
