Leonora Sisto

Ciudad de México Mexico
"I paint with my feelings, my desires, my fears. They drag me under me, my unconscious opens the door for me, and when I capture them on the canvas, during the painting process there is a catharsis that generates inner peace and joy. The elements I now use in my work are fragments of cloth, which help me create the feeling that I discover those emotions under them. I combine them with textures, that allow me to leave marks like those that our own experiences of life have left in our soul, our mind, our skin. Finally, I usually add some text allusive to the subject, as well as wires and threads, with knots or stitches, that unite, knot or release. In general, I use strong, vivid colors. These convey my passion for life. "
