Lot 285 - Eugenia Cuellar - Pensive
Watercolour and Pencil on Arches Paper
A6 (15x10cm) Original Artwork
Signed on Verso
Eugenia Cuellar’s paintings are mainly focused on women and the challenges they have to face in a contemporary world. Women interacting with men and women, in different settings and situations, in non-places, subjected to other people and to social and cultural norms. Sourced from own images, collages or mass media imagery, the people depicted in her compositions are either real or imagined. Her work can oscillate from painful or abusive situations to idyllic ones that make up a kind of parallel world that surround us. A world of beauty and pleasure that create a new unreachable standard, an unavoidable mirror in which to look oneself at.

Statement about AOAP Submitted Artwork
Both works submitted belong to the realm of fantasy. They are a product of pure imagination. Pomeline and Louis are little lambs that belong to Marie Antoinette and graze happily in the Petit Trianon gardens, completely unaware of their owner’s fatal destiny. Equally, the woman in red is absorbed in her thoughts, imagining ways of changing things.
