The surreal world manifested by artist María Fernanda Lavera with an extreme passion that informs the spectator of a certain state of inner turmoil through the release of outlandish forms of intense colors that are both abstract and primitive.

Lavera was born in 1975 in Buenos Aires, Argentina. The artists discovered her fascination for art and painting through an aunt who imparted to her a love of sketching and textures.

Lavera explains that she likes to let things happen intuitively, without a clear intent; she is fascinated by the effects of colour, the play of light and shade that allow her to explore her moods freely.

Painting is a visual conversation for Lavera -- a moment, a feeling, and especially, an outlet that allows her to express the mystery of life through a symbolic space of complete freedom.
