On her numerous trips to Mexico, her knowledge of pre-Hispanic sculpture grew, which allowed her to renew her artistic discourse. Beginning in the nineteen fifties, she gained more recognition for her work and began assembling wood, a style for which she would later be recognized and into which she integrated a great many residual, discarded, or abandoned objects. Among these are chair seats, stair rails, picture frames, musical instruments, crates, boxes and clocks, and other objects.[1]

In 1953 she began her experimentation with the wooden assemblages for which she was recognized. He began by assembling entire walls with boxes, crates, chair seats, stair railings, balustrades, keels, musical instruments, clocks, spheres, cylinders, among others3. All the assembled elements were painted in a single matt black, white or gold color. The large size of his works produced a special atmosphere in the galleries, which is why he is considered today as one of the precursors of the installation.
