C. Selves. A Personal Vision of Modern Spain

In her lively oil paintings, C. Selves says her goal is to depict no less than “my life, my person, my class, and my generation.”

C. Selves-Arbust de Mimosa
Her vision of her world in contemporary Spain is at once personal, humble, and wittily modern in its observances. Selves paints small moments – a flamenco dancer at a town festival, a boy squinting at a computer – that dip in and out of eras. Her people are vividly present, in action and voice, and they exist in fully realized environments that offer movement and warmth. People and scenes are painted close at hand, mirroring the emotional nearness of these intimate images. Colors are heightened and playful without slipping into overt stylization. When Selves’ paintings do occasionally take on a dreamlike quality, it is in subject matter: an apparition of a palette set ablaze, or a portrait of a man whose face is all but hidden by swaths of cloth.

Selves was born in Manresa, Spain and currently lives in Barcelona. She has exhibited in Finland and throughout Spain and France and some of her paintings have joined the collections of states’ museums in Spain and Finland.
