Girls Talk

This series of paintings by Yuna Bert was created using several kinds of paint, sometimes used separately (oil and acrylic on canvas) and sometimes combined. The artist has a real fondness for light, smooth and flat materials. In all these paintings, the main protagonists are women whose faces we never see completely, as if the viewer has to mentally fill in the blanks. The common denominator of these paintings is that they were composed from a series of black and white photographs representing women in motion. Like the photographs that inspired them, the paintings represent glimpses, slices of life, incomplete narratives that are just waiting to be developed in the viewer’s mind.
