Marta Chirino

12.11.2016 – 04.12.2016

Sometimes it is quite complex to write in words certain impressions, and this is one of those cases. To describe what Marta Chirino manages to share with us through her works becomes arduous and delicate. As, while maintaining a clear superficial disquisition between scientific illustration and botanical drawing, she presents a profound reflection to what the simple complexity of nature is concerned.

Marta Chirino is a biologist but also a great artist. She has achieved a perfect symbiosis between both worlds. And, in fact, she dedicates  her time to both with great virtuosity.  With a scientific thoroughness she portrays flowers, plants, fruits, even seeds. While with excellent artistic skills she dissects each piece wrapping them with an almost mystical aura.
