This piece is for the “Fundación Fernando María Centenera Jaraba V Certamen de Dibujo Contemporáneo Pilarby Andrés Centenera Jaraba
(“Fernando Maria Foundation Centenera V Jaraba Contemporary Drawing Contest Pilarby Andrés Centenera Jaraba)
“Its objectives are the conservation and enhancement of the International Contemporary Art Collection and the promotion and dissemination of the artistic work of new artists in all its manifestations and, especially, the drawing.”
The exhibition “Me, Myself and I“ and the winning artists selected for this fourth call, will be exhibited in Madrid during the month of February 2013, in Room La Lonja (beside the Matadero) Arganzuela district of Madrid.
This is what I wrote for the discription of the piece:
The crows are inspired by a story from Norse mythology. Huginn (from Old Norse “thought”) and Muninn (Old Norse “memory“ or “mind“) are a pair of crows who fly around the world to bring back news back to the god Odin.
In this work there is a faceless girl representing myself, with two crows on either side. The crows are my eyes, they can be mischievous and not always tell the truth…
I front of her lays a book that is made up of the words in Spanish: Yo, Me and Mismo, ( Me, Myself and I) leaving the crows to translate the meaning for her.

Lisa Gingles is an artist born in Northern Ireland and based in Valencia since 1998. She graduated in fine arts from the University of Ulster in Belfast, where she began to develop her narrative style.
She has exhibited nationally and internationally over the past years.
Gingles´ artistic repertoire primarily consists of small drawings that are crafted using pages from old books or their covers as a foundation. Additionally, she has begun incorporating larger charcoal drawings and sculptures into her body of work.
" The artist´s works conjure a bewitching world of eerie fairly tales and ancient folklore, a world where both menacing and benign forces of nature are at play"
Sunday Business Post, Susan Morrel.
