Artist works


my story

Tena Navarrete

My work is a record of my dialogue with the external world. Everything that I experience influences my paintings. Scenes have been set into my memory which

develop into images that take on their own forms. They start from allowing shapes to develop, change and grow.

They are constantly changing, I scrape, draw, redraw,

adding paint and layers of texture to build on what was

there, hiding underneath. They have a life of their own, and I am just the catalyst for it's evolution.

The final image is a dialogue between me,  the images and in the end the viewer.
