Circus is a place full of possibilities. Here, incredible things can happen, the body bends in a seemingly impossible way, and even the rules of gravity seem to be pending. Warren's works exist in this place full of possibilities. At first glance, it seems to be a world familiar to the audience, but it is full of possibilities of distortion, leap, change the past or future. Influenced by the circus photos and "Hollywood poster girls" photos in the early 20th century, Warren performed at both ends of the camera, exploring power, reproduction, gender, performance and magic.
Light is an element of interest to artists. In every work, images are directly connected with light. In this way, Warren's work is a clear photographic work, which takes place in a photographed world. At both ends of the darkroom and the camera, she is like magic, trying to find a space full of infinite possibilities.
