Our friends at Folie sent Barranguet an ODD. New York shopping tote, and with swift motions of impulse, she has transformed the everyday object found in our store into a contemporary work of art.


“Spontaneity, chaos, laughter, turbulences and excitement, are some of the things that I believe keep the magic in life going.  With this in mind, when I create a piece I allow the contrast of emotions to show on the canvas.  Following no specific plan or rules, I look for inspiration in my impulsive brush strokes, allowing gravity and accidents to happen during the process, always in search of a final and positive balance. My intention is to create work that transmits life’s magic, with its beauty and imperfections. I see my painting as a mirror of myself, but mostly of what goes on in the world and the events that surround me. In fact, it is a reflection of reality, distilled through my experience, into abstraction. Music is always on, it is the bridge to my meditative and creative state.” 
--Vicky Barranguet
