About her work:
Crespo captures the vitality of the matter that reveals itself to us through its continuing transmutation from one form to another, one system to another, in an autopoietic process. For the artist, sculpture is a process of accumulation and always-different repetition. Crespo’s sculptures free the boundaries of bodies and objects from fixed terms, stable or closed configurations, to emancipate the life of things from the limits of a culture that is too unnatural and materialist, disclosing the silent but vital existence of other possibilities in the continuous transmutation of forms. From solid to pliable, rigid to soft, biological to inorganic, these various combinatory properties emerge in the materials and working methods utilized by the artist.
