Maya Stefania: Repetition

Thursday, October 22, 2015

Maya Stefania is an oil painter based in Aarhus, Denmark who spent five years in San Francisco. Repetition is her series of partially-abstracted double portraits with really wonderful brush work. Stefania quotes Danish philosopher Kierkegaard: “What is repeated has been, or else it could not be repeated, but the fact that it has been turns the repetition into something new.”  There’s a great interview with her about her work and her journey as an artist with Betty Wood.

Artist Crush: Dariana Guevara

Monday, October 19, 2015

Dariana Guevara is an illustrator from León, Nicaragua who currently lives in Madrid. This series from 2012, which I don’t have much information about, grabbed my attention. The human form as depicted by Guevara has a beautiful fluidity, an exchange with the other objects and shapes she includes. In these works there is a graceful tension between the body as familiar and foreign.
