I started this piece with the formal intention of following one of my sketches, but random took over planned. The result is quite different I expected, and honestly I am so glad!
BIO: Begoña Lafuente lives and works as an artist near the Northen sea in The Netherlands. Born, raised and educated in Spain, she moved to North Holland in 2009 with her husband and two daughters. Begoña has a bachelor and master degree in Fine Arts at the Fine Arts University Complutense of Madrid and has been working as a graphic designer since 1993. She is a multidisciplinary experimental artist; her process is continuously evolving using different techniques and media, fusing reality with abstract. Her art works invite you to draw your own interpretations. She participates often in local and international artfairs and exhibitions and her works can be found in private collections in Europe (Spain, Germany, United Kingdom and The Netherlands), and in The United States of America. ARTIST STATEMENT: "I marvel why there are timeless pieces and why others fall into oblivion. Art should be an atemporal conversation where not everything is said, but suggested. These untold meanings are what enrich, puzzle and arise the interest of the viewer and make a piece unforgettable. I try to use this complicity with YOU, the beholder, in every art work. I thoroughly enjoy the process of creation, taking my time to fine-tune colours and shapes: movement and contrasts push and pull each other to create an emotional and visual tension.
