CLARA DE BOBES

The Latin American Contemporary Fine Art Competition
December 5 – December 15, 2018
Reception: Thursday, December 6, 2018 6-8 PM

Painter Clara de Bobes renders her subjects with a fiery intensity and a deep sense of longing. Focusing more on emotion than depth, de Bobes illustrates the psyche of the individual more than their physical appearance.

In Roland y Barthes, we see a blonde figure with wide, dreadful eyes and a gawking raven on her shoulder. Referencing the work of French literary theorist Roland Barthes, the work reflects on the limits on mythology. The raven seems to represent the allure of cultural myths, while the figure must face the brutal existence of reality.
