Muse Gallery is proud to host The Color of the Music, a solo painting exhibition of work by Jacqueline Unanue. Her recent work is inspired by music and features colorful, large-scale acrylic on canvas paintings.

The exhibition at Muse Gallery includes work created during 2020-2022, inspired by the music of Vivaldi’s Four Seasons’ Spring, from The Four Seasons, Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue, and traditional Armenian music performed with a duduk, an ancient instrument. She has been painting while listening to music not as ambient sounds, but as a breathing element, alive in her work.

Jacqueline Unanue is a Chilean American artist of Spanish ancestry residing in the United States since 2000. She studied design at the Universidad de Chile de Valparaíso, and received formal training in fine arts, art history and textile art. She traveled extensively through Chile’s Atacama Desert, doing on-site rock art research. She also traveled to Spain to study the pre-historic paintings of the Altamira caves in the Basque Country, which is the home of her paternal ancestors.

Unanue has received numerous awards and grants. Her artwork has been widely exhibited in Chile, Spain, Finland, Ecuador, and Argentina, as well as in galleries in Washington DC, Philadelphia, Annapolis, Chicago, and New York. Her work is also represented in many private and public collections in the Americas and Europe.
She currently lives in Philadelphia with her husband Ricardo Guajardo who is an artist and designer. She is represented by Muse Gallery, Philadelphia.
