SANDRA NITCHIE is the original author of artworks where Mexican popular art meets the complex theme of the nature of personal identity. In fact, the reference to La Catrina, the Mexican symbol linked to the celebrations of the “El Día de los Muertos” is constant in the chromatic vivacity and in the ornaments of the masks worn by famous icons of the show biz world. Often portrayed as a tall, elegant female skeleton, La Catrina, inspired writers and artists, expressing the will of Mexican culture to interpret the moment of passing not as a taboo, but with ironic participation. Nitchie’s painting, intense and genuine at the same time, attentive to the expressive values of color as well as to the harmony of the composition, gives rise to a complex play of masks and identities, allusions and revelations, transforming the memento mori of European tradition into vivid and lashing interpretations of an inescapable caducity that bond all the mankind.
