Synkroniciti is excited to welcome the imaginative vision of artist Dina Perlasca. Dina works in a number of media, including photography, ceramics, metal and assemblage of found items. “Monumentito” (Little Monument) and “El Templo del Jardin” (The Temple in the Garden) are installations around her home. The lighting and choice of materials, as well as the desert plants of the US/Mexico border, create an otherworldly and whimsical take on human existence.
