Eumelia Castro at her studio


I am a self-taught plastic artist. Painting is a fundamental part of my life. Painting is my meditation process; it allows me to CREATE and grow internally by which I live and vibrate.

After a drastic change in my life, I want to break with what I established myself, now I am walking the path of mixed media abstraction. My work is inspired by the beauty and delicacy of women, by nature with its soft and curved shapes, by its bright colors that form fields within my work as if they float in space. Each work is my personal reflection, my emotions, my spirituality, spontaneity, The expression of instinct are present in every work I do. Painting and working without knowing what the result of my work will be is a very exciting challenge for me.

I use oil paints, acrylics, oil pastels, different tools on canvas, cardboard, and paper. With gestures I manifest strokes and with textures I obtain soft and drastic shadows on backgrounds in which the colors mix and blur. The drops and drips that I somehow enclose with sinuous lines as if I am closing stages and circumstances of my life, these drips extend towards the borders of the painting as if they were showing me new spaces to discover.

In my work the viewer is free to interpret the meaning. My work is created to spark curiosity. I want the viewer to experience happiness in an atmosphere of serenity and peace. I believe that my work is the vehicle that allows me to connect beyond words with people.
