WOMEN AS EPICENTER OF MY ARTISTIC EXPLORATION
28 FEBRUARY • 1 MARCH 2021
Living around the world and engaging with women from different cultures is food for my soul. My encounters resonated with the similarities of emotions and experiences everywhere, rather than the disparities of race or color. I portray women who know how to balance themselves between the finite and the infinite by communicating an attitude towards life choices and situations.
"Ana's art is bold with color, brave with images, fierce with female portraits" - Heidi M.C.
"I like the bold color and your drawing style combined. I like that you’re drawing women but not as sexual objects to please men but instead you capture the essence of what it means to be a woman in all its diversity and forms. All your women are beautiful in their own way and you capture what is unique in each of them." - Claire M.
I have sat with my painting for a few days and have found that
She is insulated, fiercely protective of the wisdom she has gained in battle. She knows her power and the sacrifices made to earn it. She will be careful in revealing herself as she finds peace in her own stillness and solitude. - Leigh T.
