Hilma Krla


Hilma Krla was born during the spring tides of Pororoca where the confluence of the Rio Negro and the waters of the Rio Solimões run together without mixing. Krla is a mixed-media social practice artist, advocate, and mother of a boy who was diagnosed with autism and sensory integration dysfunction. She has experimented with various media such as photography, graphics, water colors, acrylic, and oil, but works predominantly with repurposed materials, fabric, clay, and collage. Krla is attracted to simple but chaotic compositions. Her work has evolved from personal experience. Krla's art touches on themes of psychological aspects, aspects of our humanity and her goals are to engage in social responsibility and find creative ways art can be utilized to create public awareness.
