Mar Delestal

My work is a quest for sensations through composition and chromatism in constant evolution.

My origin and formation are within a classic environment. As an art student in Spain and Greece, I learned the basics of drawing and painting: light, color, composition; tradition. My vision changed when I moved to the Netherlands, where I faced other artistic currents that made me think about how to represent reality. I abandoned realism in painting.

I process the acquired knowledge and I begin to create my personal world. Based on the abstraction, I frame it at first in the geometric rigidity, to give way to a free and exuberant explosion of color. The background take importance, I play with them making them participants in the work. The color reaches prominence and opens up new possibilities for creation. I use it both in its pure and manipulated state.

Each brush stroke, each layer of matter becomes an exploration with which I can give shapes and sensations of solidity, transparencies, weightlessness ... The chromatic composition becomes the mistress of my work and becomes a personal stamp.
