Muntsa Molina

Artist Statement


My interest lies on the exploration of life and nature. I find in the animals an easy way to represent feelings and emotions. Observing and studying their organic shapes helps me to portray their movements in a poetic way. I also find the human body an interesting subject, with its organic structure and shapes, it allows me to depict sensations, emotions and feelings.

 

My work is primarily based in the illustration. I often employ pencils and watercolors to create delicate drawings inspired by the nature. Through printmaking, I found the opportunity to play with the line and the tone in a subtile way, mostly using hard ground and aquatints. Also with the Japanese woodblocks, I discovered a new medium that adapts to my needs matching my illustrations with the representation of all these movements and life.
