Hulda Guzmán (Born 1984, Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic)
Born in the Dominican Republic and still living and working in Santo Domingo, Hulda is influenced by Mexican folk art.
Through simple and economical large acrylic paintings she uses depictions of everyday activities to tell stories of eroticism and illustrations of life. Her interiors, painted on wood, are restrained, tightly composed and have an almost perfect flatness to them. Her portraits, painted in one sitting using only her left hand (she’s right handed) are powerful and emotive and satisfy her need to investigate gesture, to achieve free and spontaneous lines.
