I have spent several years drawing realistic portraits and nature landscapes. A˛n initial stage of watercolors of buildings and historic cities, was followed by depictions of dancers. As always fascinated by the sea and the underwater animals, I painted the waves, the skies, the Mediterranean posidonias, … trying to reflect the sentiment of freedom and peace, mindfulness and connection with nature that I experiment: obsessed by the light and captivated by the liquidity and instantaneousness of the watercolour.
Many other more abstract-conceptual works and installations about climate change, renewable energy, scarcity of resources and the subconscious, the relation human/nature/ and the women perspective are presented in the last few years, after my stays in Madrid, Paris, Singapore, London, Luxembourg and Denmark. The plan is after a last stay in Tenerife, and Tarragona, head north close to the Artic in Iceland, and then arrive to Australia, in a long journey to explore the connections between humans and climate change, with the aim of closing the loop, linking places that have to do a lot with water and environment, a journey that started many years ago. I don´t pretend to copy or repeat the landscape (nature, environmental problems…) that I am seeing. I rather focus on a concept, idea, impression. More info can be found at http://mvmworks.weebly.com
During my stay in Iceland, I understood that outdoors painting was going to be a major source of my research, because if I am looking for connections and comprehend changes nothing better than to experiment first hand. I was trapped by the gigantic event of the volcano eruption.
Intrigued by other specific characteristerics of the Island, 6 series have been developed. And I have been investigating if/how climate change is affecting Icelandic horses. Is nature trying to say something to us? These beautiful horses seem to be the ultimate connection between humans and nature, wildlife.
