The work of Imma Merino is an enjoyment of the senses and it is even more so when we go through with no hurry, allowing it to be part of us or us as a part of it, to be able to enjoy what the artist has embodied and be able to perceive the emotions that she felt at the time of his creation. It’s then when you realize that the space painted by Imma Merino is just an excuse the artist has used to make us perceive a world of sensations and feelings, a space that is telling us that the work does not end in the limits of the canvas. It only indicates what the artist has taken to make us understand that beyond the picture there is still beauty, there is still life, there are still feelings and emotions.
In the work of Imma Merino, not only the shapes and colors placed wisely by the artist are visible, but also her personal universe, the universe born from her entrails and that she offers us through her art, so that we too are partakers of it and we can discover the result of its creative freedom.
. Imma Merino el arte de la pintura
Pere Ventura Julià – (Art painter)
«Sometimes art is understood as the technique. However, while the technique is reached by means of constancy and by act of will, art is reached by the approach to inner perfection, the perfection of the soul that has no meters to be measured, nor rational methods to explain it, because it is beyond matter and reason.»
Leonardo Da Vinci
I was asked once how I would define art …
“You use a glass mirror to see your face; you use works of art to see your soul.”
George Bernard Shaw
“Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time.”
“ What do you think an artist is? He is a political being, constantly alive to heartrending, fiery, or happy events, to which he responds in every imaginable way. Painting is not done to decorate apartments. It is an instrument of war for attack and defense against the enemy.”
It is difficult for me to classify my work, ordering it in collections, this is something I leave for the critics and for the spectator himself, who can define what for me is a desire and a need. Visit my galleries, collections, know my work and draw your own conclusions about what is and what is not, what you feel when you contemplate it and what you think I may aim when painting it.
