ABOUT NOTHING BUT THE STARS SERIES
Nothing but the Stars is a collection of 25 artworks that radiate surprises and daring feminity, that everything about her is spontaneous. The artist was inspired by the sparkle in the eyes of a woman that was reflective of all the love overflowing within. She dedicated the series to every woman who shared this vision. “The easiest way for me to describe women is to compare them with songs and melodies that inspire us, give us feelings of melancholy, and give us feelings of joy (Chiqui).”
ABOUT THE STILLNESS TO ELYSIAN SERIES
The Stillness to Elysian paintings represents the 10 stages of the artist's life in meditation that emanates from stillness. The paintings illustrate a myriad of metamorphosis stages from awakening, determination, balance, contentment, recreating vision, exploration, reminiscing, satisfaction, submissiveness, and achieving bliss from spiritual rebirth. "Going through a roller-coaster of emotions during unprecedented times of our lives is natural" according to the artist. However, when the mountain of doubt shifts, an aurora of hope appears. This anomaly of intense emotions may be ephemeral at first but conceivably restored with feelings of self-exploration until it captures the person's blissful state of rebirth or Elysian. Similar to the historical works of the artist, she consistently communicates that "hard work is a form of meditation" and the Stillness to Elysian paintings demystify Chiqui's months of introspection that describe an individual's spiritual journey from the abyss of uncertainty to the high road in realizing elysian.
To support this auction, the artist is pleased to present LOT 96 "Sparkling radiance in the midst of still air I (2012)" and LOT 97 "Stillness to Elysian - Stage Acquiescence 3 of 10 (2020)" for the benefit of Hope for Lupus Foundation.
