She said that recently she has been strongly drawn towards examining couples by exploring the nature of partnership. The paintings are, she said, “visual metaphors on the relation between two people and their environment.” Through these images, she investigates the moments of challenge, or compassion, or crisis that define our lives as we determine if we will remain “partners” or dissipate back into solitude and individuation.

Her work embraces the unavoidable conflicts that occur in this world – between city and sea, between progress and poverty, between woman and man, between the fall and the flight, between sharing and solitude. Each image asks the viewer to consider the world, if only momentarily, from a new perspective – and to wonder if our responsibilities lie in maintaining the communion or breaking the bond.

ucía, 30, was born, raised and educated in Guatemala. She is currently living and working in Barcelona. Most recently she, along with associates, brought the first Guatemalan Film Festival to Spain. She is currently preparing for a major showing of her work in the Summer of 2009.

About the Author

Michael Tallon, Editor-in-Chief, head writer and delivery boy, of La Cuadra Magazine, expatriated from the States 11 years ago. After spending a year in Antigua gasbagging about wanting to start an English Language magazine, he hit the road and wandered about South America, India and Nepal before finding himself sipping tea in Darjeeling and realizing that maybe it was time to head home and pick up the career path. That ill-fated adventure in New York lasted about 6 weeks before he headed back to Antigua, Guatemala, where John Rexer had actually started the magazine in his absence.

After a few months, Mike took over the magazine and has been going slowly broke since. On that note, Mike would like to invite advertisers, readers and potential patrons to send him free money.
