With a follow rooted within the rejection of the classical, and conservative, Santana disrupts conventional approaches to portray by deconstructing digital media into a whole bunch of layers and reimagining them via her large-scale oil canvases.

On her approach, and uncooked subject material, Santana states: “By shifting the thing to grow to be the brand new topic, I spotlight how, all through historical past, photographs of ladies have been typically passive and pleasing”. Santana creates this very shift in her new exhibition by bringing us into an area of protected feminine erotic illustration, that vastly contrasts passivity, and meekness. Her figures refuse to be contained, somewhat they take up area of their unabashed stature, flux, coloration and vary.

Author Whitney Mallet, notes on Angela ‘s daring subject material: “Beguiling of their opacity, there’s an attract to the eerie sense of calm and a provocation made by their defiant refusal to be consumed as supposed. However greater than something, these artworks operate as a reclamation of female eroticism for an period of system error”.
