Lorena Ziraldo

Artist statement: As an artist I am inspired by what I see and feel.
One way or another all artists comment, document, and explore; looking for new ways to say something or say something new. Artists work reflects who we are, what is going on, and what it is to be.
I am an observer, and chronicler of basic human emotions.
Love Joy Birth Death Fear Loneliness Anxiety Change Wonderment
Human emotions are the constants in life.

Concentrating on the portrayal of figures, I stick to my mantra, and focus on formal qualities ( composition, colour, space ), subtle delivery. Simple ingredients can evoke a powerful response .

An element of beauty is good.
