Background Information about Rosa Muñoz
Muñoz wanders through cities both large and small, searching for peculiar street corners and off-the-beaten-path alleys to reinvent. She gives old walls fresh coats of vivid paint, fills entire rooms with tropical fruits, and decorates with flowers. Although Muñoz hints at the impermanence of the depicted objects, her high-contrast works emanate vitality. Through the seemingly arbitrary placement of the visual elements, the artist leads the viewer into a dreamlike parallel universe.
Muñoz’s unreal images show similarities to the work of Italian painter Giorgio de Chirico and that of René Magritte. As in the surrealist movement, the symbolic imagery in Muñoz’s work resonates deep in the viewer’s subconscious. She has developed a coded, imaginary language to capture reality through everyday objects and then negate it. She puts the world in disarray in order for us to see it in a new light.
