Fruit Portraits: From A Photo

Ended - Monday 18 July 2022

Alonsa Guevara is a New York-based artist originally from Rancagua, Chile. Her paintings are a window to an imaginary universe where the lines between fantasy and reality are blurred. Guevara’s work explores questions of womanhood, identity and belonging while celebrating the connection between humankind and nature.
Her main inspiration derives from the experiences of living in three different countries, and is especially impacted by the formative memories of her childhood spent living in the Ecuadorian rainforest with her family.
After living in Ecuador for seven years, Alonsa moved back to Chile to receive her BFA from the Pontifical Catholic University of Chile in 2009. In 2011, she moved to New York to complete the MFA Program at the New York Academy of Art. She was awarded the Elizabeth Greenshields Grant in 2013 and received the Academy's Fellowship award in 2015.
Alonsa's work has been published in Forbes Magazine, Time Out NYC Magazine, VICE, among others and has been exhibited internationally, including China, Mexico, Denmark, Argentina and Chile. Her most recent solo show Apparitions was in February 2021 at Anna Zorina Gallery in NYC.

Untitled 2

Join Alonsa Guevara on the second of a three-part course on oil painting techniques to create a realistic portrait of a natural object. This second session will focus on painting using a photograph as reference, focusing the participants' skills on studying patterns, colours and details to bring out the realism in their painting. Under the guidance of Alonsa, the workshop will introduce colour mixing, the use of optical black, and painting of details to achieve a realistic work of art that resembles the photograph.

To take the full course, join the other two Fruit Portraits session to learn how to paint from life and from imagination.
