Coming from a poor upbringing in Uruguay, a small country in South America, I relate to poverty and hunger. I was homeless a couple of years ago, and I understand the desperation of being a woman without a roof over your head. This is why I paint images of homeless women in an impressionist abstract manner. I call my process spontaneous realism. My work is about using simple texture, line, color, shape, space, and form to create emotions. These works are a reminder that in a country as large and the United States, many homeless women are treated like street furniture, ignored, and unnoticed.
I make no distinction between abstraction and nature; my work is concerned with translating nature's majesty into the paint. Anchored by natural geology, my paintings divulge secret passages of caves in nature via a constellation of brushstrokes. Executed in 2018,Condor Agate Beautyis an allusive painting of exuberant fluency and riotous color. The viewer is invited to project their interpretations onto neither entirely abstract nor figurative forms. With its mesmeric, meditative surface,Condor Agate Beautyswells and pulsates with an aura of brilliance and the beauty of nature. Condor Agate Beauty is part of my initial body of work, and it is for sale in support of the Feed Me Project, which raises funds for homeless women and homeless shelters
