Painting: Oil, Paper on Wood.
"Stickers" makes part of an ongoing series of portraits on wood entitled "Unidades Disponibles". These portraits represent women of different ethnic backgrounds and visceral, ambiguous beauty. The background for the portraits are pages taken from product sale catalogs, pasted onto the wood surface and then painted over. Popular ideas of consumerism as well as a nostalgia for children's toys come through the designs, shapes, and colors of these pages as well as the gaze of the anonymous women.
The portraits are usually bought in groups of 3-10. This way, the individual faces of each women disappear to make room for a beautiful landscape of colors, shapes, flesh and facial features.
