  2. I like Ana Pachecho's paintings better than the sculptures but then again, I'm a bigger fan of paintings in general.

    To my eye, the head looks a bit like Christopher Walken, one of my favorite actors!

    Thanks for the info. on Shadow Sunday. Looking forward to it!

    Thanks Villas Girl, for stopping by here!

  3. It's a little weird for my taste, but I do like the top two.

  5. Susan: there's a series of these queen of sheeba with hairy legs paintings. They're very sweet. :-)

  6. It's so interesting to me how some of her works make me laugh out loud with delight, while others are so obviously tortured.

    So now I'm a fan - thanks!

  7. Wow. That last pic "Damned" is an eye opener... An eagle on torturing a person... Hmmm?

  8. Very odd but fascinating. 'Dido' reminds me of Chagall a little. Strange, in a good way.

  9. Mark - it's nice to see you by!

    The last image is a side of Ana Pachecho I don't know a lot about but certainly nightmarish.

  10. Wow, some of her work is really arresting. What a find.

    I have to admit that I like her sculptures even more than her paintings. They almost have a gravitational pull on my eyes.

  11. Libhom ---- aaaaaaaaaah, I was hoping someone would. I said before that I favored the paintings but the sculptures are now growing on me with repeated viewings.

    Makes me want to go back to London.

  13. Very interesting. There's a haunted look to the faces of her subjects.

  14. What a post! Each image is more bone-chillingly bizarre than that preceding it. As always, you have quite the eye for intriguing art...

  15. I have to say I can appreciate these, but I don't think I like them. I wouldn't want to live with one, for instance... They don't scratch my itch, but I can see how they might scratch someone else's, all right.

  16. pagan sphinx: What interests me most about art is the aspect of emotional communication. I love works like these which say things to me emotional that it would take me hours to describe with words.
