Painting by Celeste de Luna
There is certainly a lot to learn from Celeste de Luna's painting "La Batalla".
A self-portrait that describes the artist perspective of a male dominant world. As it can clearly be seen, a masculine masked man firmly holds the woman's head, almost forcing and given no choice, as both subjects gaze back at the viewer. The masked wrestler is defined strong easily able to overpower the female subject at his will. A blue saint rests against the shoulder of the female setting a calm personality between them. The image is then framed in a transparent red in an uneven manner and glorified by a star above them, simulating the idea of a picture within a picture, which brings forth another message of perhaps the idea that real life is not what it seems.
What I find distinctive in Celeste pallet is her use of vibrant yellows and orange contrast to the use of black, which has continued in her late work. Her brush strokes radiate light and echoes across the painting, making the painting loud expressing her inner feelings.
Through her art Celeste de Luna is in my opinion becoming another inspiring voice in our community that expresses awareness in social, political and religious issues.
