Montserrat Alsina

The work I do comes from a place deep inside, from that place of silence, it is a dialogue with the inner self, an expression of feelings, emotions and senses, it is of the effects of the environment and of people surrounding us. In order for me to express myself I need to not only use drawing, printmaking and painting but also incorporate movement, video, sound, lighting and the written word. Creating for me is like a breath, dancing, stretching, moving, making that first line on the surface plane, using a brush, a roller, charcoal or conte to make marks; filling the spaces with textures and colors, and different movements emerge, like dancing on the surface, creating infinite mazes where the eye of the viewer can travel and discover a worlds of wonders, joy, stability and chaos.
