Lourdes Sanchez (Watercolor)





"Propelled by a desire to both revel in and to transcend (perhaps as well to 

ultimately alchemize) a persistent sense of displacement in the human world,

these works aim to fuse ancient and archetypal geometric forms with inky

randomness to form totems to the idea that the big mess of it all will be

beautiful eventually, and sometimes is so, even now. 

These are images that, having traveled the arc of the Ugly Duckling paradigm

are emboldened to be quietly and defiantly elegant." - Lourdes Sanchez
