ARTIST INFORMATION CONTACT INFORMATION
Acrylic on canvas, figurative expressionism

After being an abstract, under strong cultural influences of my country and the intellectual world around me, I kept on exploring the human mind, the reason of life, and the existence of spirit. I studied Philosophy in the University, and Psychology too, and was searching any author of mayor philosophical oriented tendencies. Russian philosophers, German writers, Latin-American representatives of modern and old cultures, and so on. Finally, I arrived to my own soul. Here I am, painting simple pears. My immediate and huge Universe, as a creative woman. My spirit in love with nature and with a man. My faith in a very simple and big myself, that can show no any more through complicated shapes and lines , but just fresh and deep, as never before. Fruits that are gods of their own universes. Paintings that anybody can enjoy and live with, that the collectors will enjoy too as serious pieces of art. I do not talk to the intellect any more. I talk to the real being, in its deepest emotions. My strokes are wild and with composition of equilibrium. Modern and traditional combination that can be almost everywhere, without offending, and contributing beauty to the environment. An statement of spiritual presence.
