Bridget Bate Tichenor Surrealist Artist from In Wonderland at LACMA + 29 Faces 16

A while back, I went to the LACMA show In Wonderland: The Surrealist Adventures of Women Artists in Mexico and the United States.  My attention was captivated by artist Bridget Bate Tichenor.  She had a number of pieces there, but these are the ones which drew me in the most.  I was fascinated by  Los encarcelados (The Imprisoned).  It made me curious as to what inspired the piece, they didn't have any information at the show and I wasn't able to find out anything via google, so I'm afraid it will be a mystery to me...  I also liked Líderes (Leaders), from reading about it I learned that she related these figures to spiritual guides.  Her technique involved multiple glazes built up with oil paints.

Face 16

Also, here is my sketch for the 29 Faces Challenge, it is my 16th face.  The goal is to share 29 faces in the month of September.  I believe this is the first time as an adult I've drawn a girl with pigtails..  I've always thought it was a very cute look though.
