"I hope women feel reminded that in them lies a powerful tool to reset their mood," says artist Cristina Lopez Casas. "To the young and the old, the flamenca will teach you to love yourself by dancing to your own tune. You will feel like a famous performer and it will rain flowers and all sorts of abstract ideas, you will be one with all botanic beings. But there is also a reference in the balance between earth and mind, symbols depicted in the hand mudras. Maternity vs artistry."

Cristina Lopez Casas

Oaxaca de Juárez, Mexico

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.
