female characters in the work, they always play different roles in femininity
so in these houses sometimes there are minstresses, sometimes there are Lady of
the house or there are the cleaner or the potser, but at least different
persona, confusing someway. They fit into clean archetypes of the woman.
talk a little bit about your technique, how your painting work to create

CW: I always start with making lot and lot of
sketches for paintings and I use photograph, but I make a lot of sketches to take away from the photograph
expression, starting to use the language
of painting - I suppose - I think what this language can do. I work with quite detailed
acrylic and then with the oil color to give brightness and highlight the brighter areas. It is almost like
using a glazing, a kind of technique that reaches in the dark areas, something much more fluid specially in the
areas without reflections.I think is about what painting can do
and no other
media can, which is what I like the most: my favorite paintings are in the
language of reality, but they do something that twist and something that make you
think about life in a different way. It is like taking something that we take
for granted and then try to make people think about it in a different way and I
think painting is an essential tool for do that. It has a materiality that not only affects the image youíre looking at, it's something about the way it has been applied, itís
about thing representing also about yourself.
