Aissa Maria Santiso

About the Artists:

Aissa Santisso's work explores how the perception of the past is often a manipulation or reconstruction of the images engraved on both our personal and collective memory.

For Santiso, painting is a personal process, which starts from an intimate relationship between the human being, the surface, and the surrounding reality.

Her work is based on a compilation of images from family photos, stills from films, or classical works of art throughout history. The images in her paintings are manipulated and transformed in abstractions by superimposing finishes and layers of color, created through stains and washes, and by rearranging the frames of the original images.
