Painting stylish, contemporary portraits of women with expressive strokes of oil paint on canvas, CORDERO creates works that confront the viewer: portraits that stare directly outward, with their enigmatic, complex eyes and gazes creating a subliminal dialogue. Each of CORDERO'S images becomes a stylized female face, rendered with exaggerated and dynamic color combinations. Voluptuous, vividly colored lips and carefully articulated eyes serve as points of focus on each canvas. Long strands of multicolored hair frame each carefully contoured, tangibly dimensional face. CORDERO gives each woman well-defined features, cutting into light colors with saturated or dark pigments to create high cheekbones, arched eyebrows and flecks of colored light. When painting the faces, CORDERO is conveying her own soul and emotional experiences to the viewer. She paints intuitively, creating each work in tandem with her materials. Each larger-than-life painting has evolved from the artist's assertive, playful nature.
An internationally acclaimed artist, CORDERO has shown her work worldwide, from New York to Miami, and in Paris at the Grand Palais for the annual "Art En Capital" exhibition held by the French Ministry of Culture & Communication. In February 2016, she will show her work at Palazzo Franchetti in Venice, Italy.
