I was at a gallery showing today. Some of the works on display were by the Frenchman's girlfriend, who also happens to be a very serious artist. Her name is Maga.
The Frenchman and I hung around the gallery this afternoon trying to make ourselves useful.
Looks are deceiving because Maga is a sweet and obviously very pretty young lady. However, her art is powerful. That web site to which I linked you above is a bit of a chore to navigate through, but if you do, you will find a wonderful series of paintings referred to generally as Contactos con lo Sagrado and another series entitled La Magia del Arte 2.
For me though the really spectacular pieces are her bronze sculptures. Her sculptures of hands are beautiful. The following photo by no means does this sculpture justice, but it is the best I could do in the circumstances.
She has also done some animals in the Mayan style—that is not how she would say it; that is how I am saying it—that are stylized but truly arresting.
The Eagle and The Jaguar are relatively large pieces. Perhaps these photos will give you some conception of the works.
