Alonsa Guevara is an artist living and working in New York. Guevara was born in Rancagua, Chile, but lived in Ecuador from the age of 5 to 11 years old. Her family then moved back to Chile where as a young creative with an inclination towards making, she discovered oil painting. Guevara speaks fondly of her grandmother, who taught her everything she knows; from cutting the wood to make frames, stretching, and preparing the canvas, as well as colour mixing. Awe-inspired by and with an acute knowledge of nature, she uses it as the sole subject of her paintings. Guevara uses nature as a portal to communicate her thoughts on fantasy vs reality, womanhood, fertility, desire, and the senses. Read more
