Spanish artist Maria Mardomingo creates striking oil paintings composed of vividly colored abstract forms interspersed with recognizable figurative elements. Inspired by the light of the Mediterranean Sea and the colors of autumn, Mardomingo combines strong brushstrokes with a singular passion for color to infuse movement and energy into her work, resulting in dynamic images layered in meaning and tone. The artist has a background in fashion design, and one can see this influence in the multidimensionality and depth of her work. Patterns and rhythms emerge in unexpected ways, infusing a legacy of symbolism and meaning into seemingly abstract forms. Not only are Mardomingo’s paintings compositionally edgy and rich in color and form, but they offer the viewer an invitation to go deeper, to look more closely, to go within to contemplate the soul that underlies all of human experience. Each dramatic display of colors becomes a portal, encouraging us to look beyond the surface to all the richness and beauty that lies within.
Maria Mardomingo currently lives and works in Madrid, Spain.
