Clothing Sculptures

Guerra de la Paz is the composite name of the Cuban born, creative duo, Alain Guerra and Neraldo de la Paz - who live & work in Miami, FL.

"Our work is based on a combination of traditional disciplines and experimentation with dimension and the use of unconventional materials. It is inspired by essential familiarity with the ready made and the archaeological qualities that found objects possesses. encapsulating an energy that reveals underlying meanings and depicts the significance of mass produced refuse on our society."

"Gaining access to an overabundance of discarded clothing - relics that once helped define an individuals personality and communally speak of environmental issues, mass consumption and disposabilty - opened the doors for us to working with garments as a material."
