Nude figures traverse an expanse of slopes in a blanket of colorful patterns. A woman lends a hand in the foreground. "This piece is about women helping women in art," artist Cristina Lopez Casas explains. "Receiving the support from my female friends and artists has been essential to me. Especially in the weird and crazy garden that is our art world. We are just getting started, and we are representing mankind and humanity through the body of a woman. But we still need to see much more of this perspective in images, hence the importance of supporting each other."

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.
