Brujas. Metamorfosis de Goya

Art, Photography
Brujas. Denise de la Rue

This is the second part of the project 'Angels and Witches. Metamorphosis of Goya' in which the Mexican artist Denise de la Rua approaches the work of Francisco de Goya from a contemporary perspective; in this case she took a collection of six works entitled 'Asuntos de brujas' ('Witch matters'), that the Aragon artist completed for the Capricho palace of the Dukes of Osuna. De la Rue has created large-scale photos that bring together the original artworks and six iconic Spanish actresses: Maribel Verdú, Bárbara Lennie, Inma Cuesta, Macarena García, Verónica Echegui and Adriana Ugarte. The results are pieces with a notable visual power, which is strengthened by the artist's interest in investigating the capacity of women to reinvent and empower themselves.
