Lucía Vidales, ”It doesn't mean I'm shy,” 2021, 71 x 55 inches

The work of Monterrey-based Mexican artist Lucía Vidales (b. 1986) is concerned, above all, with painting. The body is recurrent—as figure, as the painted gaze, and as the painting itself. Fragmented limbs often seem to emerge from, or sink into, the luminous or shadowy depths of her painterly surfaces. For Vidales, painting can transform time, our relationship with matter, and how we experience our own bodies. Vidales’s work is informed by the consequences of historical and colonial imaginaries as they continue to impact both actual bodies and the body of painting itself.
