"I am inspired by the alebrijes and wooden carved animals that are a traditional craft done in Oaxaca, Mexico," shares artist Cristina Lopez Casas. "This animal seems like a flying rat, but it might be a dog or cat or something in between. The girl is riding her and one might be inclined to think about that old myth of girls getting orgasms while riding horses. So yeah, not that innocent in the traditional sense but pointing to that place of fantasy where we can ride our imagination for pleasure and well being".

Artist Cristina Lopez Casas paints deeply personal and stirring portraits of women. “My work is a record of what a woman can do as an alternative to following the traditional role of family pillar,” says Cristina. “It gives me constant joy and peace, it is essential to my mental well being. Yes, art is therapy. And so much more once it connects to another woman's life.” Growing up in Chile, Cristina studied graphic design. She desired to be a painter but many obstacles delayed her dream. Soon after school, she married, had two sons and moved to California to start a business selling wrought iron furniture. Many years passed before an unexpected move to Mexico City allowed her to return to school for a Masters in Painting. Today, Cristina lives in Oaxaca, where she enjoys the support of a vibrant arts community. She paints in a small bamboo workshop on the roof of her house with a fantastic view of the mountains. When she’s not painting, she enjoys spending time with her partner, walking and talking about science, philosophy, art and food.
