To buy works of Bea Sancho is not only to enjoy the vision of an artist with a critical, aesthetic and kaleidoscopic eye, is also to invest in an artist whose career - in the Renger-Patzsch style - from advertising to portraiture and landscape, promises to become a referent in the current photography. The psychological and seductive games of Sancho's portraits question our identity and our roles by placing us on the other side of the image.
The camera of Sancho and the critical eye of the artist through this instrument becomes the bridge between what is seen and what not, between the public and the private, between our masks and our nudes such as photographs on sadomasochism of the canadian photographer Natalie Daoust. The landscapes of Bea Sancho and the elements treated as characters concealed in textures and bilateral symmetry in the style of the “Rorschach Test” are kaleidoscopic mirrors of our own reflection. The organic becomes a mask of a body that is revealed. Because as the Japanese photographer Nobuyoshi Araki said, revealing is obscene, hiding is obscene, taking pictures is obscene but obscenities are beautiful.
