Maria Burgaz | A bit of everything:
My work is a mixture of narrations, wishes, aspirations… My environment and everything that surrounds me is inspiration for me, and I like to look over both classic and modern artists as well as advertisements and communication media.
Nowadays we live in a world full of images. I found interesting things everywhere. My work then is to isolate, connect and many times add irony and humour to all these. I think that like this my paintings have many readings and interpretations by the public and I like to see how complicity smiles appear between the spectator and the painting.
• Beyond the subject, I am also very interested in pictoric materials. When you approach a painting I want to feel different textures, materials, thicknesses. It ́s part of the game that I also like to enrich with collage and sewings.
• Many times you get fantastic results just cutting ! That ́s why my work is usually mixed media of collage, watercolors, acrilics, oil, wax… it ́s passionating to armonize, put next and on top each of these elements, the “perfection” of photography with the “imperfection” of painting.
• The canvas, paper, wood… also determin the work. I use canvas, fabrics, wood, dm, hand made paper, anything that allows me a risky and free intervention.
• The result is a first visual impact creted by color and the distribution of the painting, follewed by a nearer contact to get more detais of the scene and search your own conclutions of each piece of work. ¡All an adventure!
