My work is the summation of my personal experiences and unbridled joie de vivre, expressed through a multitude of techniques and materials. I paint, sculpt, photograph, and work digitally, yet the boundaries that separate one medium from another overlap and blend, weaving stories and characters in a tapestry of bold colors. I paint my sculptures, write on my canvases, photograph drawings and collage them digitally, then copy them back on a flat surface. My work is populated by comic-like figures, anatomical parts like mouths, eyes, and hands, or objects such as flowerpots, cakes, and glasses - a legacy of my family’s practice as opticians. By creating vibrant and uplifting dances of colors and form, I try to inspire people to have a more playful and lighthearted attitude toward life and rediscover its magic.

ag_biography : 2017. The artist trades through the fabric with the color of the tube, raw, strong, limiting its contours with black lines to reinforce the identity of each pigment and prevent the interaction of colors. The images of her, wink so much to the comic like graffiti, in a spectrum that is limited to pregnant elements of the human figure such such as: faces, mouths, noses, breasts, eyes and “ante- eyes ”eye protection device that has passed, curiously in the universe of this artist, to be part of man. Ties abound, cactus pots, the glasses, and of course, the eyes, which once more, they are the protagonists. She comes from a family of eyeologists, she says. She has reasons to spare to paint eyes. She worked for several years practicing as an optician. Looking through many eyes a day of a microscope. And it is because of the eyes, that we we find ourselves faced with a doll dilemma Russian. Where we do not know very well with what we we will find. Is it 7 people, or is it fourteen? it seems that 15, because it seems that another appears in the background of the fabric. And does the body count? .Decipher writing is difficult. It almost appears to be unreadable. But If we search, we will find that Cordillera de los Andes and Cordillera de la Costa are terms that are repeated. Surely there are others. Interesting is the use of color. Greens, blues, reds, golds and silver dominate these jobs 2017 La artista trafica por la tela con el color del tubo, crudo, fuerte, limitando sus contornos contrazos negros para reforzar la identidad de cada pigmento e impedir la interacción de los colores. Sus imágenes, hacen guiños tanto al comic como al grafiti, en un espectro que se limita a los elementos pregnantes de la figura humana tales como: caras, bocas, narices, senos , ojos y “ante-ojos” artificio de protección ocular que ha pasado, curiosamente en el universo de esta artista, a ser parte del hombre . Abundan las corbatas, los maceteros con cactus, los anteojos, y por supuesto, los ojos, que una vez más, son los protagonistas. Viene de una familia de ojólogos, dice ella. Tiene razones de sobra para pintar ojos. Trabajó varios años ejerciendo como óptico. Mirando muchos ojos al día a través de un microscopio. Y es por los ojos, que nos encontramos frente a un dilema de muñecas rusas. Donde no sabemos muy bien con que nos encontraremos. ¿Son 7 personas, o son catorce?, parece que 15, porque parece que aparece otra en el fondo de la tela. ¿Y el cuerpo cuenta ? .Descifrar lo escrito es difícil. Casi parece ser ilegible. Pero si buscamos, encontraremos que Cordillera de los Andes y Cordillera de la Costa son términos que se repiten. Seguramente hay otros. Interesante es el uso del color. Verdes, azules, rojos, dorados y plateados dominan estos trabajos

ag_press_release :

Multimedia artist Mariluz Losada’s paintings are vibrant expressions of captivating visual intrigue. Gazing out at the viewer, eyes are a common motif used in Losada’s work. Glasses strewn about mark her work as well commenting on interpretation, visuality and perception. The eyes and glasses are indicative of Losada’s family’s optical practices. Deeply invested in the workings of the eye and what it represents, Losada uses ophthalmic themes both as someone who studies vision and as an artist relying on sight: its reflection of light, color, and dimension. These eyes, faces and figures split and merge recalling the multi-dimensionality of cubist artists such as Picasso and others with characteristic ambit. Losada likens her work to comic book art from the 60s and 70s and suggests her pieces be read as such: episodic and transgressing the constraints of definitions of art. Her pieces often feature the characteristic eyes and spectacles floating whimsically amongst wavy blobs of color, slices of cake and cactuses. Rendered in stark primaries, her acrylic on canvas constructions call the viewer's eye into action, encouraging an energetic and ecstatic encounter.

Losada lives and works in the small coastal town of Algarrobo, Chile, where she enjoys paddle boarding and spending time near the sea.
