In this exhibition the mexican painter Rosaana Velasco shows remarkable women portraits and images which give us an insight into the world of the old mexican cultures of the Mayans, Toltecs and Aztecs. The works of Rosaana Velasco have a vitality to them which she creates with bold colours and contrasts. She captures the emotionality of the women she portrays. Whether it is the femininity, strength or spirituality of the women being emphasized, at times they look at the world openly and confidently, at other times melancholically and dreamily. The imagery of Rosaana Velasco presents itself as strikingly colourful, cheerful and profound.
The exhibition runs from 8 May until 29 June 2018 in EWA-Frauenzentrum.
