Acrylic on Canvas
Artist: M. Solorzano
This piece is very interesting. It is a mixture between the streamlines and perfect circles of Art Deco and the feminity and fluidity of Art Nouveau.
It features the big eyes that the artist is known for.
GAIA:She is all, the very soul of the earth. She is a goddess who, by all accounts, inhabits the planet, offering life and nourishment to all her children. In the ancient civilizations, she was revered as mother, nurturer and giver of life.
Mother Of Life
She became the Earth, birthing all form of landscape, plant and creature. Though her creation was majestic, her solitude was great. She longed for love and created the sky with whom she mated, igniting a creative force which birthed countless offspring: Time and the Fates, the Muses and the oceans, to name a few. She’s considered the primeval mother of whom all gods—and life itself—descended.
Influenced by Picasso’s period of cubism, and surrealism and De Kooning’s abstract expressionism, M. Solorzano paints biomorphic shapes. She is great at ambiguously blending figure and ground in her pictures while dismembering, re-assembling and distorting her figures in the process.
