Claro y Obscuro
Chicago area artist Elsa Muñoz paints still settings and meditative moments in time, suggesting something has just transpired, or that a new sequence of events is about to unfold. At times eerie, the work reflects her personal exploration and interpretation of the chiaroscuro technique-an approach where the shadow itself acts as a dominant character in the scene.
The relationship between light and shadow as metaphors."
