The Girl And The Five Moons
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.
In the piece The Girl and The Five Moons, we see the extremely powerful need for the artist to express the power of the Feminine. The moon is a feminine symbol, universally representing the rhythm of time as it embodies the cycle. The phases of the moon symbolize immortality and eternity, elightment or the dark side of Nature herself.
We see the soft girly side of the artist, once again, when she paints the daisy in the subject's hair.
