One look and I was immediately drawn into the fantastical and surreal world of Estela Cuadro
's artwork. Her paintings seem as ink stains caught in a dreamlike state, very often the backdrop to fictional characters, animals, and plants. As she explains (in an interview over at Something You Said
), "I like that my art is not exactly real, belonging completely to imaginary worlds ... I think that much of my time is spent connected to my unconscious."
