Anna Valdez

This contemporary digital drawing makes a still life into an autobiographical portrait. It’s quite clearly a domestic scene, with vibrant, well-cared-for houseplants, a stack of books, and a pink and purple flower quilt at the edge of a bed. Valdez probably carefully curated the books, which all feature the names of other artists, to give us a sense of her interests and taste, and perhaps her influences. The image has the casual quality of a snapshot, providing the voyeuristic pleasure of peeking into an artist’s private domain.
