Artist's statement:

Lorena Veliz's current work can be defined primarily as a magical figuration. The main topics are the immediate environment, landscape and architectural heritage of houses with a strong filter of emotion and reminiscense. Rather than visible and translated settings, they are "emotional and remembered scenarios", where color has a romantic filter, where what has been lived causes the translation of the formal composition. Also the strong relationship that the artist establishes with the rich heritage of her surroundings, makes the magic, the ritual, the transfiguration of the characters who roam around her artwork full of questions and searching, appear.
