CRITICAL REVIEW

Being in a period of developing her plastic vocabulary, Delia Corban evolves in the area between abstraction and figuration. Her speech articulates itself on the collaboration between concavities and convexities. The technique is traditional, exploring and pinpointing, by carving, the qualities of wood. Her morphologies are allusive.
