Valentine Aprile is an artist of Indigenous Mexican/American and European descent. Her visual work, supported by a background in performance, displays an acute understanding of visual story telling, movement, and the expressive capabilities of the body and portrait. She creates psychological portals marrying abstraction and life study by using both traditional techniques and intuitive improvisation. Overall, these slightly ambiguous
yet not so comfortable stories are told from the feminine perspective 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.
