Rosalinda Ruiz

Title: "Ascension"

Pronouns: She/her/hers

 

Statement:

This painting was inspired by beautiful, strong mujeres that have guided me through the most extraordinary places inside the realms of my dreams. The moon Goddess Coyolxuatli is ascending into the vast sky created with oil paint and spray paint. The red algae and frog constellation were created with oil paint to represent the healing and cleansing of madre tierra.
