Faring Purth and David De La Mano, “Chrysalis” in Montevideo

Faring Purth and David De La Mano collaborated on a wall in Montevideo, Uruguay last week in a very short period of time. “We have been corresponding for quite some time, years in fact, and the pieces finally fell into place for us to cross paths,” Faring tells us, and surprisingly her mysterious, somewhat mummy-like Chrysalis character came together in only half of an office work day.

De La Mano’s silhouetted forms bended and leaned organically nearby, mimicking the shadows of the bare branches and shadows here at Joaquín Suárez y Venancio Benavidez. Are they mere puppets controlled by the master, or are they the roots that give her sustenance and strength?

“I am thrilled to say creating with David was incredibly easy & natural. We met, shook hands, did a little bow to one another, and got to work. No plans ~ just a white wall and two artists kneading away, through the shadows of that incredible Uruguayan sunset.”
