L'ART AU FéMININ: the 6 artists

Lorentxa Beyrie

Lorentxa Beyrie

Lorentxa Beyrie (Cambo, 1975) studied ethnology and anthropology at the University of Bordeaux. In prison since 2001 as a Basque militant convicted for collaboration with the military arm of ETA, she discovered painting as a means of self-expression and of maintaining her freedom of thought. Self-taught, she uses charcoal and pastels to produce lively and colourful works that communicate her moments of hope, happiness and melancholy.

Celia Eslava Sotes

Celia Eslava Sotes

Celia Eslava Sotes (Pamplona, 1955) aims to develop a visual dialectic between the “natural” and the “human” through a sculptural investigation into the concept of the nest. Using thread and cloth, she creates objects that invite us to explore the creation of a zone of protection and of frontier through the use of textiles for clothing and for the nest. A graduate in Fine Arts at the University of Bilbao, she lives and works in Pamplona.

Maïtxu Juantorena

Maïtxu Juantorena

Maïtxu Juantorena (Saint Etienne de Baigorry, 1969) studied at the School of Applied Arts of the Gironde and then lived in Paris before returning to the Basque Country. Self-taught, she produces colourful paintings that invite us to explore a delicate and dreamlike imaginary environment. She lives and works in Saint Etienne de Baigorry.

Miren Laxague

Miren Laxague

Miren Laxague (Saint Palais, 1979) studied Fine Art in Pau and Nantes, and she lives and works in Anglet. Using watercolours, acrylics and collage, she focuses on the theme of feminine psychology. Here, she is exhibiting a series of self-portraits and a painting inspired by the Shakespearian figure of Ophelia who became a mythical emblem for French Romantic poets including Rimbaud.


Teresa Sabaté

Teresa Sabaté

Teresa Sabaté (Pamplona, 1955) sews, embroiders and sketches her way through the world in a series of artistic creations that are gently but firmly feminist in both inspiration and execution. A frequent apparition in her work is a red-bonneted female figure representing … herself. She lives and works in Pamplona.

Virginia Santos Itoiz

Virginia Santos Itoiz

Virginia Santos Itoiz (Pamplona, 1975) paints detailed representational compositions evoking childhood fears and adult obsessions in a delicate exploration of the intimacy of human existence. A graduate in Fine Arts of the University of the Basque Country, she lives and works in Pamplona.
