A peculiar accomplice In her latest body of work, del Castillo presents a series of recycled objects cloaked in grey vintage Australian war blankets. With a deft hand she has created tableau’s that are plagued with the eventualities of life; a distillation of eroticism, moral struggle, memory and nostalgia. Constantly battered by undercurrents of Catholicism, she seeks revelation through concealment in these meticulously sewn objects.
