Alonsa Guevara

I use painting as a tool to create magical worlds that contain my experiences as a woman while offering my personal understanding and appreciation of beauty. In these realms I am able to explore my relationship to pure fantasy and sexual desire.
By incorporating fresh and vibrant, rotten and blemished produce, Alonsa Guevara’s the work represents the full cycle of life, making fertility and fecundity coexist in a parallel with decay and death. The addition of memento mori, such as insects, snails and lizards hidden among the lush fruit and flesh further symbolizes the inevitable end of the life cycle.
