CHULAS Y FLAMENCAS
The series of paintings are a homage to the female figure, it is a way of symbolizing femininity and feminism, showing the pose of stylized women, including different singularities. With this collection, the androgynous portraits show individual image of these women; represented with bright colours. In these paintings, they are free and sophisticated with monochromatic backgrounds and different patterns representing different motifs, making them particular, elegant and wit in some cases. The backgrounds colours are based in the colours of nature.The Flamencas are Andalusia women dressing their distinguished costumes, are oriented to my closest cultural identity. They are autonomous women, of a determined character and always ready for fun.
The Chulas are divas posing for fashion magazines and photographic spotlights, "La femme fatale"; they are seductive women using gimmicks like beauty and intelligence to achieve their desires.
The Flamencas have been inspired by Spanish painters who have shaped the image of the Andalusia woman in their creations.
The Chulas have been inspired by the fashion magazines of the 50s and 60s of the last century. As with all reproduced characters, one cannot speak of a single meaning; this is changing according to the time and places..
