Quiñonero works with color palettes that help visualize emotions. Each color is attributed to a particular feeling or mood such as strength, madness, vulnerability, passion, struggle, pathos, greatness or wealth. The fullness of the meaning behind the colors layered with the emptiness of the background create a conversation between the contrasting elements. The soft, dry texture of the canvas is a clean and vast support that welcomes the shapes and colors that come from the artist’s mind. Through her investigation of palette and the emotion it pairs with, Quiñonero has come up with her most personal work so far.
