OUT OF MIND-MARIA ARANGO

The theme I chose for this gallery is a combination of subjects. The collection consists of artworks that are colorful, are depicting either nature or the human form, and also, have a surreal composition. Another important detail about this art gallery is the medium used in each piece; all of them are paint over canvas.
