Dora Zeneth Reynosa
For Dora Reynosa, artistically known as Zeneth, art is more than color, technique and visual expression. It is hope, connection, and the chance to communicate with our inner child. The multidisciplinary visual artist and muralist was born and raised in Acuña, Coahuila, Mexico, before moving to Dallas. As a child, Zeneth grew up in poverty. Her father introduced her to the visual arts, only to be separated from her at the age of four after her parents got divorced.
Art proved to be her space to create, heal, find individuality, and survive in a harsh environment. She was a voracious student, practicing coloring, doodling, painting, and embroidery. She was particularly captivated by the vibrant color combinations and patterns of embroidery, an ancient tradition that connected her to her Mexican roots.
Today, Zeneth’s paintings are almost “explosions” of embroidery. Her abstract designs, bold expressions of color, and precise, clean lines create striking and thought-provoking compositions. They are an exploration of her inner child, and an invitation for you to reconnect with yours.
