ESTEFANIA PUERTA
 
Estefania Puerta is a local artist in Burlington, Vt. Her work has been featured in various paces around Burlington including the Fleming Museum. She is co-founder of the Barn Owl Poetry Extra, a local monthly poetry publication and creator of the "Oh La La C'est Cher" Performance Art troupe. She draws most of her inspiration from her upbringing as a Colombian in the U.S. and revels in the exquisite beauty of identity crisis both internally and internationally.

Artist Statement:

Through the use of portraiture and magic realism, I delve into themes of loneliness and identity crisis as a result of the encroachment of modernization in human relationships. The people that I depict are outsiders. They are tender souls who lead solitary lives that have been tainted by technology, culture, or biology. It is in the world that I provide for them that they are a population of beautiful losers who elicit reverence in their strong poses and confident dejection.

The artist will host open studio sessions on Saturdays from 2-5 at The BCA Center through June 4th.
