Rose Ann Ignacio (b. 1991, Curacao) has been painting since her childhood. Working in acrylics, she incorporates bold and daring elements into her pieces. With the use of a very colorful palette, her paintings blur the lines between ambiguous and alluring themes.
"It is fascinating how sweets, mouth-watering masses of sugar, can be seen as something childish and playful, while at the same time seductive and sexy, yet addictive and poisonous, but then again delicious and beautiful. These contrasts are what I hope to capture and share with the viewers.”
Whether the painting is sexualized by its subtle suggestions, or triggers a sweet tooth is all up to the individual’s mind.
