Artwork

A character dressed in a futuristic ensemble rays light from a mysterious and powerful source from between her hands. "This piece brings honor to the individuals that have worked so hard to contain the pandemic. It's them and the science that saves us," artist Cristina Lopez Casas explains. "My parents were dentists and I grew up listening to stories about patients and pain. I knew I did not have the clarity of intention needed to be around so much suffering, but I admired it so much," Cristina shares relating healers as heroes from the future as in this artwork.

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.
