Painted life by Eva Armisén

Spanish artist Eva Armisén presents her works from the last two years in her solo exhibition “La vida pintada / Painted life,” her fourth solo show with the CMay Gallery.

In this series, Eva Armisén mixes drawings, oils and graphic work — different techniques and different approaches. From the sought-after simplicity of the drawings, a line emerges where tenderness and subtlety are the protagonists.

I am lucky enough to create a kind of a sensitive journal that I can return to whenever I want. When I paint something, I feel a certain tranquility. With the painting, I’ve frozen the moment, the emotion that I’m experiencing. What I am living will be eternal. That feeling of super power is what painting gives me. In my case, painting is intertwined with life. I cannot imagine one without the other.

—Armisén in her own words
