"This is not what it looks like," says artist Cristina Lopez Casas. "Hidden in this character's sleeves and floral design lies a secret that only women can understand." A character cloaked in a red suit holds her hands in prayer. "We are in this so-called open-minded era, and still afraid of teaching girls about orgasms. I think it is important for a woman to be able to be autonomous when it comes to pleasure," says Cristina and agreeably adds, “We should be praying for better orgasms instead of a charming prince."

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.
