"I felt like my brain was growing and expanding into the mountains in front of my new house," artist Cristina Lopez Casas shares. This painting is an intimate piece about her move to Oaxaca, Mexico. A figure sits contently with eyes closed as a red aura stretches up to a green sky. In the background, gradient hues and geometric shapes refer to the ruins of Monte Alban, a one-of-a-kind archeological site near the city. "I usually play with figurative and abstract automatic doodles, like the surrealists used to do, back in the days of Max Ernest."

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.
