Sunday Funday: Let's Paint Fruits!

Ended - Sunday 25 September 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.
