This editorial, crafted by BLUEJAZMIN, a creative studio hailing from Argentina and co-founded by Jazmin Calcarami and Azul Rossetti, delves profoundly into the intricate intersections of Art, Body, and Nature, all while portraying the talented ceramic artist and model, LUCÍA, also known as Lumst.
Growing up amidst the serene landscapes near Río de La Plata, nature became Lucía’s solace, a constant refuge even as she embraced city life. The allure of the Cordillera mountains profoundly influenced her, shifting her perspective and nurturing a deep connection to nature. Amidst the forest, she embraced introspection, cultivating a fearless authenticity that contrasted with urban worries. This communion with her environment enriched her art, particularly ceramics, which became a canvas for her unconscious expression of this profound bond. Through ceramics, she explored the chemistry of local clays and volcanic stones, mirroring her journey of self-discovery.
I have always been connected to the earthly realmand nature has always been my refuge
A sincere dialogue is formed with the environment, and I feel that immersing oneself in nature, links you to your inner self and your internal reality in a unique way.
Life in the forest brought me closer than ever to my inner self in depth and helped me orbit in many ways. Now I am more afraid of walking down the street than walking for hours in a dark forest.
Through introspection, tremendous intuition develops, and fear no longer exists. Everything that surfaces in those moments, what you long for when you are there, is what’s real.
Artistically, I believe my work at that time became a reflection of that, a discharge, because comparing it to the present, I feel I wasn’t consciously seeking meaning in what I was doing; everything flowed unconsciously.
