About the artist...

 

Mainly a self-taught abstract artist, maría moreno follows her own instincts and thus develops her own unique style, visceral, with no rules. Working mostly in acrylic, maría's paintings are always full of texture and contrast and, without doubt, passion, as she portrays her own experiences onto the canvas.

 

Although maría was born in the Canary Islands, a land of chimeric landscapes, she grew up in Venezuela, a fascinatingly beautiful country, now submerged in a terrible social and political crisis. Both places have deeply influenced the use of shape and colour in her work.

 

maría immigrated to Canada in 2014 and now lives in Belleville, Ontario. She is a member of the Belleville Art Association (BAA) and maintains the BAA social media.

 

 

Being face to face with the canvas is all about emotions and decisions.  Each painting starts as an unknown destination. Always: I choose strength over gentleness, audacity over caution, chaos over order, expression over silence.

The final outcome? Intimate conversations where no words are necessary, my paintings tell my story.
