About

Artist

LIFE SERIES

It took me 4 years working on this series. The Life series is about paintings of advertising images and photojournalism of the Life magazine during the 50’s. I combined selected images and texts achieving that way new interpretations, sometimes randomly, sometimes with a certain amount of premeditation, it becomes a game of endless possibilities.

 

CARMEN ELENA TRIGUEROS (1963)

Lives and works in El Salvador.

Her works are mostly pictorial with a touch of nostalgia and retro, however, there’s a perverse charge in dogmas and violence.

She studied painting for 7 years with artist Victor Manuel Rodriguez Preza. In her career she has gotten several recognitions: 1st. price in free category at Biennial Arte Paiz, 2003, El Salvador; 2nd. place at Biennial Arte Paiz, 2005, El Salvador; Selected artist of the V Central America Biennial of Visual Arts, 2006.
