Maria Fernandez' Paintings

I describe myself as a contemporary visual artist. I am inspired by objects and materials that have being used, have aged and have been discarded. I am interested in the history embedded in these objects, in their texture and decay. I mainly paint abstract forms which suggest the environment that surrounds me, the elements of it that I remember or for some reason have caught my attention in the past. Old pathways, walls, buildings and furniture have a powerful influence on my work, reminding me of the passing of time and the people who once walked by them or have used them for pleasure. I experiment with media and techniques that allow me to express with freedom and with no boundaries.
