Elvira Carrasco (1990) is a spanish art historian and contemporary artist. Her “FACES PROJECT” is an artistic self-portrait proposal which mix photography and “Body Art”. This term defines the use of the own body as artistic canvas. Elvira prepares and meditates before proceeding to paint her face. To record the work, she captures it by her camera. Elvira is placed in front of a window, which will be the source of light. The pupils, and the eyes in general, give us a lot of information, in them, we can see the reflection of that window which give us the location where the photograph was taken. The self-portrait is a form of self-knowledge, something essential on it is the representation of the psyche, of the human soul. Her colour, is shocking, saturated and explosive. Elvira is influenced by her Spanish and, therefore, Mediterranean roots, where the sun and the light are present. Elvira discovers that abstraction is her best form of expression, with it she can unleash her emotions, with the use of colour and textures. Undoubtedly, what the artist offers us with her work is a perfect symbiosis between realism and abstraction. She works with national and international galleries, being represented in cities such as Madrid, Valencia, Barcelona, Malaga, Paris, New York, Tel Aviv, Eindhoven, Saint-Tropez, Lisbon or Chengdu. She has also participated and continues to do so at art fairs around the world such as the Art Palm Beach in Miami or the SCOPE in Basel.She declares: “My real frustration was to do something that no artist had done before, when I discovered it, as a result of knowing about global art, I was able to open a path through which nobody had passed before.” Elvira Carrasco.
