I’ve been many times at the Crystal Palace, also in Retiro’s Park.  It’s not only beautiful, but also a place of quietness and play at the same time. You have the serene setting with the lake bordering the building with lush vegetation during the year and the busy comings and goings of tourists and children. Yes, its a place the children look for because the birds and turtles that live on or around the palace. The turtles and ducks are a joy. But, de

Reflections on Women

SRapallo, Reflection on Women #1, watercolor and ink on paper, 50x70cm, 2016.
Reflections on Women #1, ink and acrylic on paper, 50 x 70 cm

” Reflections on female relationships, complexities of emotions and feelings, family and relatives. Family and people I have known, representations, figuratively, abstractly or both.

I enjoy using natural powder pigments forming shadows and lights that are changing and transforming itself, colors interactions altering the final results, forming new details, totally unexpected. I think it’s fascinating to see how all those colors and forms take me to different aspects of my own journey on this life. ”
