The work of Alba Lorente Hernández approaches a destructive aesthetic based on the work of some Latin American destructivist artists from the early 1960s. She approaches destruction as the creation of an image or plastic piece and as a methodology for the understanding and channelling of destructive thanatic drives.

Likewise, she elaborates a code to obtain another perception of the beautiful. What is considered strange and anomalous here is, in reality, an escape where the work is achieved by breaking and deforming the material with which he works.
Following this line, he makes drawings and sculptures of an abstract nature, recording the abstract in nature, leaving a record of the process and time on the support itself.
