About Alba Margarita
In my artwork I strive to convey my inner reality and those thoughts I have trouble expressing with words, as well as to exorcise anger, resentments, anxieties and even celebrations about my experience of being born female. I am deeply inspired by female surrealists like Remedios Varo, Lenonora Carrington, Leonor Fini and others: I feel that womanhood is and always has been a deeply surreal experience, rife with uncertainty, danger, witchcraft, sensuality, love, intuition, and a sense of repressed Goddesshood. I paint primarily on black canvas, as I feel like I am drawing out all these ideas that yearn to be expressed out of the shadows.
