Art Description

Painting: Oil and Paper on Wood.

"Dulces Galletas" makes part of "Unidades Disponibles" (Units in Stock) is an ongoing series of portraits representing women of visceral, ambiguous beauty, from different ethnic origins. Made using a mixed technique -oil on magazine catalogs pasted onto wood-, the portraits reveal popular ideas of consumerism and a subdued nostalgia. The gaze of the anonymous women contrasts with Colombian product sale catalogs and their folkloric designs, messages and colors.

Assembled in groups of 3-10 or even more, the individual faces disappear to make room for a landscape of shapes, flesh and facial features. This army of painted women stares solemnly at the viewer, depicting a utopian world where there is no longer a need to talk about gender issues when facing images of women in galleries and museums.
