Pushing aside painting norms, Portada works on both sides of the canvas to slowly conceal and reveal the organic forms of the painting—a meticulous process of building layer upon layer of paint, while simultaneously wiping away the surface, unearthing earlier manifestations of the image. Likewise, canvas and linen are dyed and painted, stained and tarnished and collaged atop the surface to contest with the image below.
