Corazon del Sol is an artist based in Los Angeles. Born into an artistic environment as the granddaughter of Eugenia Butler and the daughter of Eugenia P. Butler, Corazon del Sol was very early on familiar with the art world and its dynamics. Eugenia Butler founded in 1968 the gallery Eugenia Butler on La Cienega, which was known for showing conceptual artists like John Baldessari, Douglas Huebler, Dieter Roth and her daughter Eugenia P. Butler.
Eugenia P. Butler was a Los Angeles-based artist who played a formative but often overlooked role in the inception of American Conceptual art. Her most important piece, "The Book of Lies", is a collaborative project with the works of seventy-six contributing artists. The Book of Lies lives on through Corazon del Sol, who has witnessed and experienced through memory and physcial inscription the exclusion of her grandmother and mother from the LA art historical canon. Her work takes different forms, gestures and spheres, where her mother and grandmother are inscribed into her and her work, where all three live on and continue giving the art world crystals to look and gaze at themselves.
Recent exhibition include May Power Take a Female Form at the Box LA, Book Of Lies at 356 Mission Road and (en) Gendered (in) Equity-The Gallery Poster Project at For Your Art.
