I love to create new worlds out of images I find, memories I recreate, visions that I hold with the hope of capturing glimpses of wonder and uplifting others. My art is very much influenced by my daily observations, dreams, and by my interactions with the world and the amazing people and beings that are a part of it. Each painting is a conversation with spirit where chaos coexists with order, lightness with darkness; where brush marks and colors breathe new life and new intentions. Floating images of nature, of visions dreamed and lived weave in and out, intertwining with linings of text from poems and conversations with others that inspire and change me. I believe in angels, in the essential goodness of people, in magic. And my artwork is a reflection of all this: of my love of spirit, of nature, of travels to new lands, of life.
About Fena Gonzalez
Through painted ornamental patterns, decorative fabric, organic shapes, my life recollections become alive in my work providing a backdrop for the vivid memories of my past and the realities and perceptions of my present. The moments and experiences that until now have shaped me and which are constantly redefining me as a person interact with one another and find a home in my paintings. Questions are formed, paradoxes and transformations embraced. And in the end, what is left is my renewed sense of wonder and optimism and the hope that this message transcends my art. - Fena Gonzalez
