Red Frida, 2015
Ballpoint and Acrylic on Canvas.
15”3/4 x 23”1/2 (40 x 60 cm)
Luciana's art has been praised for her boldness in exploring conventional boundaries: between painting and drawing; between the figurative and the abstract; between bright colors and black & white; between light and shade.
Her poetic pointillism evokes a strong connection with nature, inspired by the days when she was an athlete - running through forests and swimming in the ocean, lakes and rivers – often reminding us of the simultaneous strength and candour gentleness of the feminine figure.
Her mixed media art is made with special ballpoint pens and acrylic paint, including camouflaged poetry in-between forms, lines and color.
