Paintings of the 'romantic' Zurich
Cristina Ruiz de Castañeda is a figurative painter using her own perception and imagination to depict a less rational view of the world. This allows her the freedom to work with elements from her dreams, using theatrical atmospheres and including symbols of human traits.
Since her return to Zurich in 2011, the city has become the subject of many of her paintings. She is also known for portraying women as the main character of their dreams. Through these portraits, she creates compositions representing the realm between female strength and sensitivity.
She has exhibited her work in Zurich and China.
