"Now matter the color of our skin, we are all human."
This summer debuted Lisandra Brown's newest body of work Color de Piel. You may be more familiar with Lisandra's red cows with wings, but if you look close you can still see these iconic cows peering through the canvas of this new series. Color de Piel celebrates our physical differences and reminds us of our inner humanity. You have the opportunity to view these powerful portraits at the Agora, July 3rd through mid- August.
Lisandra Brown creates a story through her paintings that is positive and exuberant. Hatillo, her hometown, is represented by the red, bright blue and orange used in her work. Here Red Cows With Wings are symbolic of her love for Hatillo and Louisiana, her newly adopted home.
In Puerto Rico, Lisandra studied painting and sculpture at the School of Fine Arts in Santana. Recently, she has been digging deeper into her authentic roots, taking inspiration from her Peruvian father and other family, all of Italian decent who also painted and sculpted. Lisandra is inspired by artistic innovators such as Pablo Picasso, Vincent Van Gogh and Salvador Dali.
Lisandra wants her art to contribute to creating an environment that makes the viewer feel comfortable with their surroundings. Beyond that she wants for her paintings to help viewers to take greater joy in the everyday world.
