Taking found imagery and film as a point of departure in her work, Pascual creates photo-based sculptures,
installations, and images that employ strategies of artistic movements such as Conceptual Art, Surrealism,
Minimalism, and Arte Povera. Re-examining the viewer’s relationship to the photograph, Pascual is interested in
exposing an image’s active presence by playing with the relationship between the work, the space, and the viewer.

Pascual culls her vintage pictures from eBay and thrift stores, some coming out of an amateur photography club
where the photographers strive to take ‘artistic’ photos. They are of historical genres; still lifes, interiors and furniture,
portraits, headshots, nudes, and pin-ups. When they arrive, the images are small, handheld, fetish-like objects. In an
interplay with the photograph’s own physicality as an object, Pascual then enlarges, crops, and re-stages the images
using minimalist objects, props and lighting to form new relationships. Filtered through her imagination, the subjects
are removed from their previous context and recast in new roles.
