Artist statement

 

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 painted Red Flower as an abstract, figurative work in resin, gold, and precious stones. Red Flower is a spiritual journey of power, strength, courage, and passion. The aquamarine in Red Flower is a symbol the femininity and empowerment. Red Flower has been added to the Feed Me Project collection to raise funds for homeless women and shelters.
