About the Artist Paz Flores was born and grew up in southern Spain (Córdoba) and graduated as a psychiatrist by the University of Barcelona. But, his real passion is the expression of art: To paint. She and her family were born with the gift of painting. She has a permanent exhibition at BCN Painting Route. Paz is an extraordinarily talented artist whose luminous paintings and sensual portraits reveal a spectrum of hues as well as a range of atmosphere and emotion. Paz Flores is influenced by her tutor Antonio Cañete. She uses acrylic to imagine figures. Imagining is different from painting – with the expression and body language in the muscles, the form; you can really associate how inner emotion relates to the surface. So she has tried to treat her colors as conduct rather than paint. She builds up and models the form on canvas. The thickness of the paint evokes a sculptural and multi-level quality of her works. Paz Flores Artist Statement The human figures in my paintings serve as vehicles to convey the human experience, representing the emotional tension and psychological drama of life’s turning points. The blend of luminous color and buttery texture evoke the enigmatic environment where these moments of meditation originate. I have interwoven the looks – a prominent symbol throughout my life embodying both sorrow and joy – into my paintings.
