WOMAN AND THE MAGIC MUSHROOM
Woman And The Magic Mushroom signifies that beauty can sometimes be poisonous. It says that things that are shiny and attractive, can be dangerous. It toys with the idea that femininity is a "super power" that women hold and that it can be deadly.
The red mushrooms are beautiful. But they are poisonous.
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.
