About The Artwork

COA-11-OA-2019. Framed on black alluminium frame with glass fron and passepartout on white. Sold at the Affordable Art Fair Amsterdam 2019 after a love at the first sight by a very nice girl. It was her first art acquisition and she was very excited. She is an anthropologist who was looking for a wedding present for her friend. Instead she kept it for herself. The whole conversation with her was very funny. I really hope she enjoys it!

​Artist Statement "I explore the essence of ART: I am intrigued by the reasons for works that endure in time, the reasons for those that fall into oblivion. I live art as a timeless conversation where not everything is said, where the essential is diluted in a wrinkle. The meanings that I cannot find are those that enrich me, disconcert me and arouse my interest as a spectator. They make a piece always accompany me. I want to make you my accomplice and my witness, so that you are the one who concludes my work: Sometimes, you will feel that I play with your perception, to stop and surround yourself with questions about what you see; other times, my portraits will look you in the eye and follow you around the room, wondering who you are. Maybe sometimes I just look for your smile, born of the absurd between my work and its strange name. Finally, I want you to be an active part of my living work. I enjoy the process of creation and it can be seen in my work: My art is a game of combinations, where materials, textures and colours, which I use without mixing and apply directly to the canvas with the spatula, improvise new routes for your senses. I combine movement and contrast to foster visual and emotional tension in you. Do you feel it? You are already living it." BIO Begoña Lafuente lives and works as an artist besides the North Sea, in The Netherlands. Born and raised in Spain, Madrid, she moved to North Holland in 2009 with her husband and two daughters. ​She obtained a Bachelor and Masters degree in 'Fine Arts', at the Fine Arts University Complutense of Madrid in 1992. She then started working directly as a graphic designer ever since 1993. Lafuente is a multidisciplinary and experimental artist. Her process continuously evolves using different techniques and media. These range from paint & photography, to scannography & collage, or monoprint. Fusing a real-life image with abstract components. Her art works urges you to draw your own interpretations of what art means to 'you' as an individual. Her choices involve daily matters, but you will also find that her Portfolio is inspired by the recognizable shapes of history’s art masterminds. She, moreover, creates an emotional and visual tension through use of “Themed Contrast”, “Opposite Colour Balance”, and “Biological vs Geometric Shapes”; themes that represent a constantly shifting nature.
