The United States is a great country made up of people from all over the world as well as Native Americans. I am an immigrant. We all contribute by bringing our different cultures, our ideas, our skills, our foods, etc. Those of us who had the courage to leave everything behind in our home country, are a particular type of human being: we are go-getters, we are hard workers, we are creative, we are proud to be bicultural. Our roots have become stronger in our home country as well as in the US. No walls, papers (or lack of), fake stereotypes, define us. We already know who we are. We are proud of our roots. This painting was exhibited at the "2020 People's Gallery" at Austin City Hall. This painting was also part of my solo exhibition at the Emma S. Barrientos Mexican American Cultural Center. The sides of this 1.5" deep canvas are painted so there is no need for a frame.

About the Artist

Marlene Llanes

Austin, TX

I am fascinated by nature and the calmness it brings. I am intrigued by both, nature and the meaning of our own existence. I usually combine nature with everyday objects in an unusual but meaningful way. I want the viewer to connect to nature as a way to connect with themselves, with their inner-self. I believe that past-present-future are all interconnected and I want to capture this connection as a single moment. 

I rely heavily on light and shadows to create a sense of depth that draws the viewer into a peaceful dreamlike scene. My paintings can be very colorful but through the use of contrast I bring simplicity and order. 

I mainly work with oil on canvas because it is a very flexible medium that allows to create depth of color as well as soft gradients. I work using several layers and glazing.
