About

Tormenta, 2014
acrylic on unstretched canvas
110 x 86-1/2"

La Tormenta (Storm) is a character created by the American artist Gronk for a series of paintings and performances. She is a composite of many roles: the glamorous spy played by Ingrid Bergman in the film Notorious; Electra, the mythical princess who mourns her father; St Rose of Lima, who scarred her face to be less beautiful; and Patssi Valdez, a teenaged girl from East Los Angeles dressed in thrift store finery for a movie without film. Based on Gronk’s 1994 woodcut, Tormenta parts the curtains and sees trouble on the horizon.
