Corina del Carmel is a Mexican surrealist painter. Corina's work is very prolific. Her artwork goes from painting that evoke her Mexican birthplace offering a perspective of her homeland with a sociopolitical consciousness gleaned after emigrated to California. And to creations of inner and mystical journeys, that have been influenced by living close to nature in the mountains of the Sierra necada, where she keeps her permanent studio. She is an avid gardener and traveler.
Corina has exhibited throughout the United States, Mexico and Europe.
Corina's art and travels has been interwoven to produce an muli-cultural perspective. Her award and exhibits have arroused interest in the art community, her work is now part of many private collections around the world.
For me, making art is like going througgh the rabbit's hole. The white canvas offers me an open portal, a window to create inner landscapes and confront the observer with the realism of the imagination in a tangible experience.
My oil and mixed medium paintings are figurative, detailed and surreal with elements of Magic realism from the tradition of Latino American writers and visual artists.
For me the work of art is a blend of a concept and aesthetic proposal. The human being has always been the subject matter in the composition of my work, the human being not only as a physical form but also as a multi dimensinal being.
My art and travels are interwoven in my work. I want my painting to show an universal vision without conflict of identity because as an artist, I whish to express the link that make us univesally connected despite our cultural diferences.
