Pablo Picasso - Femme Accroupie (Crouching Woman) 1958
The Rivals. Fatima Ronquillo is an intuitive painter who works from a deeply personal visual language and imagination. Each painting is an unfolding story of layered meanings brought to life through multiple layers of paint. Her painted surfaces sparkle with thin delicate glazes over thick impastos and scattered scumbles of semi transparent colors. She paints in the style of the European classical traditions coupled with a magical realism rooted in folk and colonial imagery.
