Fatima Ronquillo

Fatima Ronquillo, weaves classical inspirations into her oeuvre, inviting us into a serene and captivating realm. Her artwork hosts a myriad of mystifying characters, set against idyllic landscapes, whispering tales of drama and whimsy. These narratives, executed with a nod to the old masters, meld magically with elements of folk and colonial Latin American heritage in a dance dwelling into the aesthetic and thematic depths of 16th and 17th-century European paintings, with a keen eye on the subjects’ poses, the gaze, and the vividness of landscapes. Ronquillo’s brushstrokes imbue her works with a romantic essence, infusing life into stories of symbols and allegories that explore the beauty and fragility of existence, the complexity of human emotions, and the bittersweet nuances of love, steeped in light and shadow. Through the lens of magical realism, Ronquillo uncovers a parallel reality, a seamless fusion of the tangible world with that of dreams and visionaries. Her unique voice echos from a deep, introspective place where the paths of art history intersect with a longing for the past and the inspiration from literature, theatre and opera.
