Artwork Statement

Femininity is symbol and metaphor, narrative pretext that guides the search for arguments to face the reality of our social context. Alicia rescues the scenes of her childhood, the iconography of popular beliefs to make her narrative speech. He appropriates the canons of naive painting through professional training. “Doing the work is nothing more than giving free rein to feelings, ideas, the most secret of oneself from the subconscious to the outside world (…), finding the keys to creation (…) to gradually weave a web that is capable of communicating a state of mind, whether from sexuality, anger, hatred or hopelessness. "
