Marta Urosa

Since the beginning of my artistic practice, I have been creating pieces with a strong self-referential character. They are, mostly, linked to the reality that I live in. Paintings become vehicles, not just for expression of emotions, but for decoding life and delivering my points of view. The work has consequently acquired therapeutic sense for me. The works are made in mixed media technique: acrylic paint, collage, as well as objects and materials from my everyday experience. The result, moves away from “pure” painting and becomes more of an object than a surface. Regarding the size, I work in small format because it gives me a sense of intimacy. I call the pieces “paintings for a little room “ I am interested in creating visually poetic pieces with a high degree of symbolism.
