Maria is a painter who expresses herself through colors and enables them to talk. It is a descriptive stream, a colorful talkativeness that expresses the whole and floods everything for it can see and feel it all.
She is a very passionate and sentimental painter with priviledged eyes to catch reality and her own point of view, and her unique skilled hands are simply enviable.
But to feel is not the same as to communicate. The true artist is not the one to be astonished but the one in charge of conveying emotions to evoke personal worlds in the spectators mastering the difficult painting techniques. This is what Maria does herself. As in every great painter, her mistery and secret is sheltered in her brain and heart. Therefore, even though people would always love her paintings and be surprised by them, her work would also resist the critical analysis by far.
I know nothing about Maria’s training. Nor if she even had a teacher herself, or if she had left him or he made her suffer instead. I do not know if she even meditated on the Monet water lilies, if she have ever thought of the Impressionist or Fauvist paintings, or dwelt on klimt’s last landscapes…her paintings shake all the memories up and the youthful and free overwhelming flood moves forward as light, color and a personal life are dammed up in the retines and hearts. María revives real creativity essence in her own right. Not a common one!
Let there be no mistake, she is a warrior. Many relentless working hours to give shape to that mental light till the unimagined emotional gleam is uprooted from the palet.
The expert eye notices what seems to be an easy task at first sight to be in fact, a persistent struggle to draw the light leap in the air that defeats gravity. Not all painters make it!
Therefore, Maria García Orea’s paintings is easy to be looked at but hard to be analysed from a brilliant outcome. We are dealing with a painting, complex and puzzling character. Apparently, easyness in her manners is revealed in surprise. But an elaborated perspective lies underneath as well as color layers, drawings, the mood and light performance. A different matter would be the bright brain acting as fast and safe like the fluttering pianist’s fingers flap their wings. A few get off the ground!
Her fundamental aspects are harmoniously combined. Design, volume and color. Three joining elements as part of a whole achieved task. Landscapes are confined and complete round poems. A great painter!
