Zinnia Clavo is a Spannish artist living in Marbella (Spain)
"Painting is a mystery. For me, it is a path to escape reality.
Nature is my starting point.
When I start a painting, I have a definite intention.
My line of thought, the development of the idea in my mind to the tip of the brush are infinite.
The paintings gets its own life, It dictates its laws to me, and ends up by painting itself. If I try to control it, I know that I will end as a looser. I feel that I am the instrument, as I let myself guide by what the painting asks me. At the end, I discover a small secret place where its soul is hidden."
After a series of almost monochromatic paintings, Zinnia Clavo has reintroduced subtle and discreet colors in her very recent paintings. As always, her beautiful compositions express the essential emotion leaving a very slight suggestion of the underlying reality.
