Carmen Campos Marcos
Painting is another language I use without accents. Perhaps it is a universal way to communicate between artist and the viewer.
The subject or theme I work with needs to create with me an intimate dialogue. It must be a multi-sensorial experience that transports me to a space filled with peace and tranquility. It could be a happy or sad emotion; excitement or frustration, or any other state of mind. Emotions and feelings can change with time, place, situation and internal moods. A painting can be a catalyst for introspection for both the artist and the viewer. Sometimes I feel deeply moved by an artists’ work. When I express myself by painting, using forms and colors, I feel vulnerable, as I am sharing an intimate experience. However, only in that vulnerability can a deeper connection be possible perhaps.
