The Growth of a Tumor, Study 4

Most painters interpret life and they struggle to create new, unexplored regions. Some recreate what they see, others what they imagine. In any event, artists are interested in reflecting reality the way it reveals to them. In this process (of choices) their art reflects their interests, influences, sources, mediums, colors, etc. I like to call this kind of paintings of my work as “Human Landscapes”.

“The Growth of a Tumor, Study 4” seeks to show the temporality of the human condition.

The medium I used is oil on paper (90 pounds) and it has a double gesso layer.

About the artist:

Bio: My name is Veronica Huacuja (o̅o̅-ä-co̅o̅-hä) (1958). I am a painter that was born and lives in Mexico. I got to know my vocation as a painter since childhood. I found this initial capacity with astonishment and delight (the rest comes with work, as we know). Some of my artistic influences are the Pre-Columbian sculpture with its awesome geometry, Mexican painters, such as Jose Clemente Orozco, David A. Siqueiros, Frida Kahlo, among others. The European and American art are my artistic influences, too. It is important to mention that my work has a very strong influence from Francis Bacon's oeuvre. The pictorial currents of my work are figurative and abstract. The mediums and techniques of my choice are oil on canvas and on paper. I like this medium because it permits me to achieve strong strokes and saturated hues. Nevertheless, sometimes I use acrylic. The formats with which, for the moment I feel most comfortable using, are small (9.4 by 12.6") and medium (39.3 by 31.5"). The man and its precarious condition (temporality, decay, illness...) is the centerpiece of my work.
