ART By RAY VASQUEZ
ART by CORA RAMIREZ-VASQUEZ
I paint to explore humanity. My main focus consist of Calaveras (skeletons), and Portraits. Being of Mexican heritage, the Calaveras are a tribute to my culture, and an appreciation of life.
My portraits are expressions of people around me. Of course these people are not skeletons because they are alive. My portraits are not only images of people but also are representative of our complex nature. We as humans can make life complicated, whereas my Calaveras (who are dead) represent our appreciation and simplicity of our ephemeral lives.
Thank you for your interest in my art and enjoy.
