Isabel Yepez b. Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic Education 1992, B.F.A. Painting, Escuela Nacional de Bellas Artes, Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic Yepez’s paintings focus not only on the painting technique, but also focus on the relationship of the materials used to the human feminine form, capturing its fragility and the nature that surrounds the human form.  The women Yepez depicts in her works are rare beauties who wish to evoke emotions and create poetic fantasies with a touch of romanticism, like “I am here to take care of you.”  These women appear to be in lands where there is an eternal summer.
