Cristina Iglesias

BIOGRAPHY

Born 1956


Cristina Iglesias, born in San Sebastian, Spain, is an established Spanish sculptor and graphic artist. She works with industrial materials, usually combining concrete, iron, and glass, with plant motifs like bamboo or fallen leaves, and often covers the exterior of her pieces in foliage.


Her sculpture work is accompanied by large format serigraphs, which are printed on silk or copper. These pieces often appear to be photographs of real installations, though in reality they depict miniature models of her sculptures. Along with her work in three dimensions, these prints create complicated spatial illusions, further blurring the distinctions between natural and constructed space. Iglesias lives and works in Madrid, Spain.
