I boarded up my studio windows with large Masonite panels save for a small area so that could get a clear, bright and direct stream of light on this white pitcher. EM Saniga came to visit our studios here at @fourpillarsartistresidency and gave me this suggestion so that could study and understand light better. Needed to take a break after about two and a half sessions on this- but the exercise has been quite enlightening though a bit exhausting to the eyes from a lot of looking!
@criistiina_toro “Cristina Toro’s paintings, collages and photographs imply movement and change. They serve as both a record of the artist's life, and as a catalogue of carefully considered formal innovations. These works deal with identity not through traditional self portraiture, but through a rich constellation of associations and clues. Free to reimagine figurative image making, the artist paints dissolving landscapes, pools of water, beloved objects, psychedelic flora, and often her own body with a spirit of force and deep devotion to detail. The macroscopic and the microscopic aspects of the floating world, and the material world are always merging and mirroring each other; in a series of infinite and complex undulations, streams, and patterns.” #contemporaryart#womenartists#latinamericanart#supportlivingartists
