Apacible (2019) oil on canvas, 40×50



A naked woman, her soft body, sitting quietly and relaxed, far from modesty or taboo, because the body and its shapes are precious gifts for Magaly to paint and celebrate. As Degas said: she is a simple and decent woman and she only cares about her solitude.

The strong and vivid colours recall the Caribbean origins of the artist. This painting is an invitation to relax and above all to accept yourself, starting with the artist herself…

In the background, some apparently insignificant objects have been enhanced: the basket of oranges, the vase with the flower, the bottles, the box of brushes (as if he wanted to leave a sign of his art in the painting itself), the window from which the light that illuminates the subject.
