Dried Tear

Lita Cabellut

Represented at the Opera Gallery in NYC   HERE

.

Bio from The Opera Gallery:  ”Spanish painter Lita Cabellut was born in 1961 as a gypsy on the streets of Barcelona. She was raised by her grandmother after being deserted by her mother. At the age of eight, Cabellut was placed in an orphanage following the death of her grandmother. She was eventually accepted into the Fine Arts School in Amsterdam after being inspired by past masters such as Rembrandt, Velazquez, El Greco, and Goya at the Prado Museum.

Cabellut’s work serves as a bridge between classical tradition and contemporary paintings, where she creates faces and figures from the past, infusing her own history as a gypsy into understanding the beginnings of the focused model she brings to her paintings. Because of her own experiences, Cabellut is able to see through the eyes and cautious stares of her subjects, and to ultimately engage her audience with a sense of challenge and compassion.

Cabellut is inspired by strong, struggling women of the past, such as Coco Channel and Frieda Kahlo. She paints these famous women, or representations of them, many times over. By doing this, Cabellut is paying homage to them and attempts to explore their inner emotions in how they relate to her. The artist works on large-scale canvases incorporating oil and plaster on linen. Cabellut employs a painterly technique combined with a visceral surface texture that aims for emotional release instead of precise recreation. Her works have been exhibited worldwide, including in Paris, Dubai, Seoul and Miami.”

Artemis:  The artist on the title Dried Tear…  from Esquire (link below) “Asian women (that have) suffered with pain and dignity”, and the reason for the Dried Tear lies in “the pain that has dried, but is full of beauty.”  You could read more about  it:  HERE  and  HERE.  

She’s had some life.  Her work has always been so striking. Intense.

It’s spring fever. That is what the name of it is. And when you’ve got it, you want - oh, you don’t quite know what it is you do want, but it just fairly makes your heart ache, you want it so!
