Her work is based on the contemplation and exploration of different channels that landscapes offer in order to connect with the universe and our inner selves. Her painting, be they natural, architectural or abstract themes, come from experiences and visions, both physical and spiritual journeys.  These have allowed her to create a new way of perceiving reality, to see a body of work based on the understanding of the symbolic charge of color as a tool that has allowed human beings throughout history to explain the duality between the earthly and the divine.  She currently lives and works in Mexico.

Vicente has managed to link landscapes of millenarian cultures with the current social imaginary, through a poetic perspective regarding the passage of time. Vessels and bodies, simple and generic, are transformed, through artisanal and social contact, into preferential and modern pieces.  Prieto's materials and objects function as a hinge between the whirlpool of the city and the serenity of craftsmanship, where water, land and fire are important both on a practical and symbolic level. His works are an evocation to that life previously lost, to that of interior rare beings, some that inhabit the pre-Columbian imaginary, Egyptian, Celtic, Etruscan or Saxon, extinct presences in the fierce positivism of contemporaneity.

His work is related to nature, especially landscape. Through his paintings, he is interested in addressing indefinite, imprecise natural spaces, impossible to locate on the map. Generally, these spaces are framed within a particular time: Night. From the mysterious nature of the night, associated since ancient times with the contemplation of the universe and its unknown energies, he uses some of its associated concepts and elements, such as mysticism, rituals and paranormal encounters to build his work. Matias has participated in numerous exhibitions in galleries, museums, and biennials in Chile, the USA, and Germany.  He currently lives and works in Chile.
