Sobre la artista

I express myself through painting. For over twenty years my work has focused on representing the intangible and the incorporeal, through painting anonymous “flesh and blood” characters. I capture images of people whose path cross my own with my camera. These pictures are the basis for my work. Their appearance, colors, gestures and rhythm captivate me and trigger me to grasp the essence of the moment. I transport them to worlds filled with color and light. All characters remain anonymous on the canvas and the observer can identify with them, with their concerns and with the emotions they convey: loneliness, love, fear, joy, doubt, peace …

I have always worked with sketches and a plan, knowing what I was going to paint. However, recently I have started to change my creative and working process. I now start to paint without an established plan and I let myself flow with what emerges on the canvas. This way surprising outcomes arise, hidden emotions uncover, and I get to go to unexpected places. As much as I seek to reflect certain emotions through painting I think the paint itself also causes unintended results and new emotions and feelings.

This change in the creative process involves a formal evolution in my painting. My backgrounds have changed from empty colorful backgrounds to much richer and meaningful surfaces, becoming co-protagonists of the canvas, along with human figures. My intend is to continue to explore this new creative path. Breaking with the style for which I am known can be difficult and challenging at times, but I want to move forward and grow as a painter.
