"Vessel within a Cathedral"

Inspired by The Sacred Family Cathedral in Barcelona, Spain, designed by Spanish architect, Antonio Gaudi within the concept of using nature as his muse; artist Ingrid Barreneche in collaboration with artist Will Landis used the Florida Landscape to recreate some structural patterns of The Sacred Family Cathedral and inspire Barreneches’s idea of building a “ cathedral “ to honor women that are vessels of life. The Vessel as the place where life begins and ends; it is the cycle of nature and a journey that we all, as living creatures, are part of. The Vessel encompasses two metaphors of symbolism; living and dying every day at the same time, while simultaneously asking the viewer to revisit their own Vessel and wonder within their own realm.
