Dora Cuenca is a Costa Rican artist currently living just outside Philadelphia. As a mother of three wild ones, much of her work draws inspiration from motherhood’s collective memory. She blends the abstract and figurative, to evoke the vibrational quality of the way something feels, rather than how it is seen.
