Valentine Aprile is a multidisciplinary artist of Indigenous Mexican and European descent. Her work displays an acute understanding of storytelling, movement, and the expressive capabilities of the body and portrait. She creates psychological portals. Her paintings marry abstraction and life study using both traditional techniques and intuitive improvisation. Overall, her slightly ambiguous yet not so comfortable image stories are inspired by world events, observation of human behavior, and life experiences such as growth, love, justice, and survival..most often searching for hope and connectedness.
