TERESA GHIGLINO

...
(Funerary Dolls of Chancay) paintings by Peruvian artist Teresa Ghiglino at Starbucks
Teresa Ghiglino, a Peruvian artist and Art Educator for the Arlington County, is presenting five of her significant series "Muñecas de Chancay" at Starbucks Coffee, 14th Street, NW, Columbia Heights. On view until August 30, 2007.
These representations of Chancay funerary dolls are original to the Chancay valley of Peru. These elaborately dress rag dolls dating back to the Inca Empire were made exclusively to accompany the deceased through their journey to the next life.
Ghiglino here has displaced the dolls from their environment and repositioned them in her work. While taking them out of their context, and depicting them in a two-dimensional plane, Ghiglino seized their assigned meaning and engendered a specific personal interpretation deemed to embrace her Peruvian heritage and recover her cultural identity. Their physical expressions and seeming interactions are captured embracing with sensitivity the emotional complexity of humanity.
