Born is Buenos Aires, Argentina, Rosana Azar has established herself as a ‘Magic Realism’ painter. She casts light on the everyday, and investigates relationships between translucent form, vibrant texture and transcendent constructs.
The magical quality of her work is juxtaposed against the realism of everyday life and highlights color and beauty. Hidden imagery appears and the veiled enchantment of Azar’s work comes to life.
