2014 - 2015
In a series of ten ambrotypes made in Chile and Mexico, the author uses as a visual resource "the exvote", a plastic expression of religious features that acts on one side as an offering to the divinities, thanking for the favours received, and at the same time, it is the photographic witness of the miracles conceded. Inspired on the great masters of the Baroque painting, Toro Goya gives protagonism to color, shining by hand each one of the ambrotypes, and thus individualizing each element put on scene.
The devotional images in the series "Milagreros" reach a kind of delirious baroquism, prevailing in them a tension between the stylistic elements, in which the valuation of the disorder and chaos idea, the preminence of the labrynthine, the importance of the detail and the overabounding of significants get conjugated among them. the author appeals to parody in order to question the prevailing sociopolitical model in a great part of Latin America.
