Vanessa Vilchis

I am a Mexican artist painting realistic portraits and self-portraits in oil and acrylic. My art reflects on the meaning of the ephemeral, the quality of time, the need for the body to deteriorate, and the inevitable loss we must face as human beings.

A radical shift in my work occurred after my mother’s tragic passing in 2014. Beset by grief and existential doubts, I was overcome by an overall sense of injustice about the cruel arbitrariness of life’s fragility. In an attempt to make sense of this new reality, I became exploring the inevitable transformations and evolution of the human body over time. I challenge the traditional canons of beauty, by painstakingly documenting signs of physical decay and revealing the grace and wisdom of those who are nearing the end. My self-portraits allow me to further investigate the transitions of the human body; an exercise in self-analysis which is heavily informed by my aerial dance practice.

My hope is for the viewer to pause and appreciate life as is happening now. Although I believe our soul is immortal, our physical existence is transient. We must learn to value those we love, surrendering to the infinity of the present moment.
