I paint what I know. Sometimes it involves communicating perceptions, relationships, and feelings too difficult for me to put into words. I'm inspired by depth, continuity, love, faith and multi-generational connections, the most meaningful things we have and sometimes what we lose. There is a certain forgiveness of myself I must exercise each time I paint. Raising a large family means that painting sessions are reduced to blocks of time lasting an hour or less. Painting in this manner reflects my current life circumstances in hurried brushstrokes and imperfections that reveal my most authentic voice.
Lupita Carrasco is a mother of seven, caregiver to a mentally ill parent, and an artist living and creating in Colorado Springs. Born and raised in San Diego California, her tumultuous childhood and vibrant Mexican culture lend their voice to her individual artistic language. Lupita works primarily in oil, processing her emotions and human experience through exploration of the figure, still lifes, and landscapes. Her paintings frequently feature family, friends, and immediate surroundings. She has exhibited in the Pikes Peak region since 2005.
