Painting A State of Terror

Research output: Contribution to specialist publicationFeatured article

Abstract

The Mexican painter Chantal Meza (born 1989) takes us on a deeply moving and challenging journey through the intimate realities of her worlds of beauty and pain. Born into a family of local artisans in Tecali de Herrera, Puebla, Chantal draws upon the history of local artisan techniques by using her hands as brushes. In doing so, her work captures the movements, feelings and intensities of the raw realities of existence in all their complex and unsettling ways.
