artist feature: lourdes sanchez

i'm pretty much mesmerized by the inky, lush lines and fluid color palettes of new york-based artist, lourdes sanchez's washes on paper pieces...
her website states that "some of her work is simply a love affair with the natural world, and a fascination with the geometric and molecular structure which is the underpinning of organic life." born in cuba, lourdes honestly writes on her "about" page of growing up awkwardly, in new york, clinging to rooms that offered up "jars of paint, paper and solitude."

there is indeed a quietness to her work, a gentle softness, despite the smashing up of line and color, the bleeding together of mediums and color filled organic liquid shapes. i love that. enjoy!
