Artist Statement: Maria Fernanda Cuartas

I am a self-taught artist. Initially, I painted landscapes and still life, then ventured into abstract art. I find the human figure fascinating as it speaks the language of emotion. This led me to Neo-figurative art, focusing on women and their experiences. Each line emphasizes their personality’s strength.

I aim to distort reality, suspending objects and losing lines into infinity. My paintings explore the unseen but known, the intangible aspects of existence, like emotions and thoughts. They are souls breathing through mere glances, yet intangible.

The absence of faces invites viewers to see themselves in the art, like looking into a mirror.
