B. 1982


Mexican painter Jules Carp is determined to express a specific message through his work: the need for society to embrace its feminine side. For him, that femininity means a lot more than the superficial implications of traditional gender roles. It means openness, sincerity with who we are towards others; a more inclusive relationship to sexuality; and a more honest relationship with the beauty of the world. This shows on his canvas through his use of color and shapes to portray a more fluid and almost dreamlike version of objects. He has been most influenced by Jimena Rincón and Jose Manuel Springer, and has been part of expositions in several places in Europe, as well as Mexico City.
