gentle beast 2023

The gentle beast emerges as a figure from exploring motherhood from its shadow. It is a companion in my journey through different intimate transformations, such as my change of country and my partner's gender transition. It draws its strength from deities such as Coatlicue, Artemisia, Tlazoltéotl and the Cihuateteo. Figures of power that embody contradictory dualities and that live in bordering territories, representing the intersection of opposites. This exploration starts with painting, the discipline where I was trained, but it embraces other formats and knowledge, trying to expand and question my learning and open myself to other understandings, questioning the patriarchal practice of Painting and producing new work tools.
