Eugenia Cuellar

Biography

Bon in A Coruña, Spain. Lives and works between Madrid and Galicia, Spain.

From major political problems to basic human needs and fears, Eugenia Cuellar paintings are basically focused on women and the challenges they have to face in a contemporary world. Women interacting with men and women, in different spaces and situations, in Marc Augé non-places, etc., subjected to other people and rules, to customs and social standards.

 

So, her work can oscillate from painful or abusive situations to idyllic ones that make up a kind of parallel world that surround us. Exotic landscapes, interiors, portraits conform this secondary world. A world of beauty and pleasure that create a new unreachable standard, an unavoidable mirror in which to look oneself at.

 

Eugenia Cuellar studied Fine Art and Law at Complutense University and UDC- Santiago University (Spain). She has a MFA in Research in Art and Creation (2017, Complutense University) and is currently studying at Turps Art School (CC, 2022/2017).
