About Beatriz Valiente

Born in Madrid, Spain (1978).

My inspiration comes from nature and this helps me to express all kinds of feelings.

I draw shapes, remembering all the experiences that are in my subconscious, experimenting with linear elements, that I superimpose and manipulate, in order to create organic formations with plenty of lyricism. Landscapes are turned into emotional stages, materialising in different disciplines, as a vital need to express thoughts, through a constant technical and plastic investigation.

I create images simulating intimate scenes, rescued from the memory, provided with a personal sensibility. They show certain sensations of movement and change, that alters according to the position and distance they could be observed at.
