SHANE BARTLEY (www.filmcolourist.net) - ColoristInspired by neoclassic paintings including Manet’s ‘Olympia’ and Caravaggio’s ‘Narcissus’, Valenzuela emerges like a mirage with literal and metaphorical mirrors that serve as tools which take the viewer on an exploration of desire. In the video’s final sequence, Manet’s ‘Olympia’, is reinterpreted with Valenzuela depicting the figures of both prostitute and maid, stating that artists actively occupy both spaces and that satisfaction can most importantly be achieved by giving to oneself.
