Arlequin

2015

Acrylic on Canvas

40×32 inches

Jael Estrella’s symmetry work continues to impress, with her meticulous approach and amazing familiarity on the colour pallete. The story of Arlequin brings us back to her European roots where the arlequin (or Harlequin) plays a comedic role in society. Often seen as a poor “fool”, dressed in patcheworks of used cloth, Jael’s inspiration from the Arlequin is translated into a colourful and joyful rendition of a comedic “fool”.
