New Mexico painter Dorielle Caimi explores real-world themes of feminine strength and grace through mixed-media, pop surrealist imagery. Her graceful figures, often rendered in oil, are juxtaposed with abstraction and fantastical touches. Glitter and goldleaf add to the playful and sincere aspects of the work.
“Her large-scale figurative work explores issues of personal identity through her unique expression of form,” a statement says. “Her paintings highlight the strength and ferocity of female beauty, through a careful and methodical deglamorization of her subjects. Ever present throughout the artist’s work, are the fluorescent hues and shapes which speak to the advertorial, graphic nature of her narratives and represent the pressures faced by modern women. Through their intense chroma and monumental scale, Caimi’s work celebrates the power of visual communication as a means to express higher truths that challenge our time-worn social constructs.”
