Artist Connie Lloveras was born on Cuba and grew up in Miami, FL. She is well known for her abstract and mixed media paintings. She is a collectible Latin and Cuban artist who has had an incredible number of solo and group shows in the U.S. and Latin America.
Lloveras work juxtaposes natural organic elements in nature with more rigid structural forms. Tables, pots, and ladders are placed amidst trees, seeds and leaves. The work sets up a stark contrast between nature and constructed and man-made objects. It draws inspiration from establishing the similarities and differences that exist between them.
“Bird in Flight, Rocks, and Eggs” is a mixed media work on paper. This piece takes inspiration from my daily walks to Matheson Hammock (in Miami, FL), where I often encounter birds in flight,as well as, random nature forms such as rocks, branches and the like.
