Assumpció Mateu works using mixed media and collage, in both, large and small formats. Assumpció uses in her paintings nature as a reflection of her interior state and mindset.
“To me, painting is a vital need, a passion and at the same time an instrument towards finding knowledge. Like any other creative process, painting is a testimony of the one who holds the brush; a reflection. In my case, it’s a testimony to my emotions, my life experiences, what I sense around me…
It’s not easy to express such feeling in words, even more so when my artwork tends towards informalism, where you don’t deal with known images but with the ones coming out from our subconscious, to get to oneself and reflect on them.
My painting comes from accumulated memories, experiences and the mark they left. It has always been a reflection of who I am, of what I search and my emotional state; using my personal landscape as the main thread.”
