Oil on Canvas
36 X 48
Artist: M. Solorzano
UNTITLED (woman with big yellow hat)
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. An admirer of beauty, she paints the female form as the mother of the universe, and nature meshed into one. Her art has been changing through the years to a more figurative style and melodic lines.
We see a proud woman, surrounded by flowers, wearing a big yellow hat, that playfully, hides part of her face.
The artist paints these flowers in her pieces often. To her, they symbolize, the softness of womanhood, like that of the petals in a flower.
The big hat, hides part of her face, to suggest that subject has secrets.
The lines have movement, to point out the sway that she finds in the feminine, and the bold yellow line in the middle of the piece, to call to attention her sweet game.
