For Magaly Barnola-Otaola the body is a metaphor.
She reflects and visually disserts on the power and strength of the marvelous corpus that is the human body. In her works the body endures tests and hardships and experiences ultimate ordeals and struggles. Muscle and flesh are pushed to the limit or assessed to the extreme. Barnola’s bodies show the fundamental essence of humans in an utmost combat. Forte, vigor, and potency reveal their toughest edges in a definite battle for title of the greatest and the supreme. They are in an energetic and lively battle for the furthermost of victories. On a wider scope and Barnola’s main concern is that her bodies assess the human condition in its supreme and paramount excellence. She has exhibited international and national levels. At the present time, she is represented by Contemporary Art Projects USA.
