Rosi Garita was born in Costa Rica and since 1987 she was living in Canada. She is both an artist and a published poet. Rosi Garita’s paintings look like extremely stylized portraits of women. Each figure is richly colored and romantically posed, like the subjects of Gustav Klimt. If you look closer you’ll find that the women’s bodies are actually composed of hundreds of little faces. Everywhere a woman’s body is exposed, her skin is actually made of tiny human heads, like flesh-toned scales canvases. They are young and old, showing every ethnicity, hairstyle and color. Rosi Garita’s paintings may inspire two contrasting reactions. First, you might feel inspired, because they could represent the human family, but on the other hand, you may also feel alarmed, because scores of faces are staring back at you, and at first you didn’t even notice them. Sometimes her works make you feel as if you’ve unveiled a secret. Garita’s series is handsomely displayed in the López Escarré Gallery in the café of the National Theater.
