Female Portraits: Looking back to the Past
The “Female Portraits: Looking back to the Past” collection consists of several portraits of women who endured situations of violence.
For the design of this exhibition, I drew inspiration from the Valencian painter Joaquín Sorolla, as he is one of the most internationally renowned Spanish artists.
With this art collection, I aim to bring attention to these women who are often unknown and do not have the opportunity to be the subjects of portraits of this nature. That’s why I use these images to bestow upon them the utmost dignity and a representation different from the usual. Simultaneously, their personal stories are being narrated.
All the artworks are of large format, similar in size to the original reference artworks, sharing a common theme of representing independent women who take pride in their family and their work.
The portraits are my interpretations of Sorolla’s works, offering my unique vision and style to depict these women. All the artworks were created using a variety of methodologies and artistic techniques, recreating the various compositions, brushstrokes, as well as other elements like color and light. All of them were produced in my studio-art gallery, “Galerie Portraits”.
