Fabiola Menchelli Tejeda constructs installations with simple materials in her studio and projects computer-generated shapes onto them, transforming the construction with light and shadows. In this way, she attempts to reconstruct spaces from her imagination, combining the contained physical world and the expansive possibilities of the virtual world to construct images. Ideas of drawing and construction permeate her work as she questions notions of reality and perception. The final aesthetic result is a printed photograph that portrays a complex visual space that evokes a world that is both virtual and real. The artist earned a BA in Computer Mediated Arts from Victoria University in Melbourne, Australia and BA in Communication at the Universidad Iberoamericana in México City, México before going on to receive her MFA in Photography, Massachusetts College of Art and Design in Boston. A Fulbright fellow, she has exhibited her work in numerous venues, including at Ligaya Condesa (México City, México), Paine Gallery (Boston, MA) and the Fitzroy Gallery (Melbourne, Australia).
