Fresh Translucence: Maria Olivares Alfaro

19 Sep

It’s no secret I’m a huge fan of artwork filled with thick, saturated color.  But there are times when I happen upon an artist whose work feels like a breath of fresh air.  When I saw Mexican born Maria Olivares Alfaro’s work, it felt refreshingly light and simple.


I hate to use the word simple to describe her work, because  I feel like it has such a negative connotation.  But they seem like beautiful little doodles.

Alfaro’s work has a young, naive quality but they are too elegant to feel immature.  There is a thoughtfulness and sense of restraint behind each composition.

    I like colours too, but this looks pretty cool. Bet it’s even better live!

      I’m sure, especially the more sculpted pieces!
