What's Love Got to Do with It?
The term crush is an English slang word that has dual meaning:
I have a crush on you”. Used to express a brief but intense infatuation for someone, especially someone unattainable or inappropriate.
“I was crushed when I found out that he wasn’t what I thought he was.” Being crushed by the disappointment of an expectation.
And why does love have to be so difficult? Does love matter to you? What are the obstacles that are in your way? On February 15th I will unveil 2 new archetypes, a man and a woman, that show our fears, common perceptions and expectations in the controversial world of online dating applications, such as Tinder, Bumble and Match.com and in the bars and night clubs. There will be 12 new paintings, in the form of portraiture, still lifes and scenes based on my own dating experience as a single 55 year old woman searching for love.

I consider myself a nepantlic artist who specializes in conflict resolution. Nepantla is a sixteenth-century Aztec word, which means "in the middle", which they coined during the conquest. For me, this word has explained my own ancestral history , trauma and personal conflicts, that has given me the opportunity to transcend it and show through my art, how can others, can reflect and make the necessary changes to evolve. Without evolution, we cannot achieve our dreams.
It is important to understand that ancient cultures had what we call, "mythology". Their mythologies where based on common issues & obstacles they faced. Eventually, their myths were transformed into religions where people are taught how to overcome temptations and become better human beings. Being raised Catholic, I grew up with stories and archetypes, like Jesus and Mary, whose history comes from the Greek Mythology. In Mexico, the Ancient Indigenous legends were synchronized with Catholicism and I have desire to tell new stories of the conflicts that we face today by creating new archetypes that reflect our polarized world. Every year, I choose a conflict. For 2020, I have chosen love.
