Patricia Garcia Alonso was born in Sonora, Mexico in 1985, she obtained her Bachelor’s degree in Graphic design from La Salle University. She also studied Fine arts independently. She has exhibited nationally and internationally including solo and group exhibitions in Mexico, Spain, and USA. In 2014 she represented her country at the Spanish Film Festival in Malaga ‘Festival de Málaga de Cine Español’. Garcia Alonso currently lives and works in Sonora, Mexico.

 

Part of Garcia Alonso’s process before she begins painting is to read, listen, and figure out as much as she can about the specific subject she is about to create. Music is one of her main sources of inspiration. 

She places the figure into the space, using lines to define ambiguous presence in the void. Showing a wry, sly, and mischievous side of each character, she represents them by outsized gestures and expressions.  In a balanced way, she implements a monochromatic technique while contrasting colors are emphasized at the same time. The use of images in large proportions are part of her style, as well as, a broad spectrum of light colors, accompanied by thick and heavy brush strokes.

In her work she does not represent real people, but the human essence, iconic characters that portray the simplicity and occasionally toxicity, inaccuracy and absurdities of everyday life.
