"Observing the small and unnoticed, the excentric and ordinary, I find beauty in everything. Then I paint it."

Maria Fernandez

Abstract Expressionist Painter

Fernandez was born in Argentina and now is based in Australia and Spain. She keeps moving
between the two countries following the sun, continuously getting inspired by
the strong artistic cultures of the places she lives in or visits. The
magnificent Mediterranean coast and the extreme Australian landscape are main
sources of inspiration. In addition, instinct and spontaneity are key factors
that accompany her creative vision.

Maria’s technique is characterised by an
innovative and complex use of visual imagery, textures, colour, and mark
making. She experiments with different media and techniques using acrylic, oil,
cold wax, encaustic, collage and some unusual materials like bitumen and
cement, to express herself with total freedom and without any boundaries.

Fernandez loves architecture and interior design,
and her large-scale paintings are very suitable for homes and workspaces. She
thinks that works of art should not be only appreciated once in a while in an
art gallery or museum, but also in our own homes where we can see and enjoy
them every day.

Maria provides viewers with the lovely
experience of finding shapes within shapes and images behind images to provide
them with a safe, nurturing, emotional passage through the canvas.
