Imma-Merino
“El ataque de las musas”
Óleo sobre lienzo – 160×81 cm

Since I was a kid, and have to say I have memories from long time ago, I am feeling attacked by the world, by society. That society that seems hostile and cruel to me. Colleagues and even friends and family have shown that hostility to me. Since my childhood till now, I always feel the world is attacking me.

Art Is always my shelter. I can barely remember the first day I started drawing and painting, but I remember for sure I did, always. Mum used to say “Just give her a pencil and she will be quiet”. I remember my mother sewing while I was on her feet, amid threads and scraps with a sheet of paper and a pencil or sometimes some colour pencils. I always remember is when I was drawing the world became calm, only my art and me were present. When I was painting, the work became silent.

Now, when I paint, noise stops, violence stop, aggressiveness stops and only calm and silence remain.

Most of the time, they say that my work reflects peace, calm and ease, even love. This is my inner world, a silent world where everything become peace and quietude.

Discover my paintings and let your soul rest in calm the same way I did when I painted it. Let yourself find that special place you will find peace, where everything is OK, where cordiality, kindness, benevolence and protection are present on every stroke, on every gesture. And whenever a scream arises just remember scream is liberation.
