I'M MARIA LAGO

My career as an artist spans more than three decades. I was born in Northern Spain, I studied Fine Art at the University Complutense of Madrid and the Circulo de Bellas Artes, Parsons School in New York and printmaking at the Robert Blackburn printmaking workshop in New York City  and  The Arts Students League.

I have lived in New York for the past 33 years. 12 years ago I moved to Beacon, NY to open an art gallery on Main Street where I create my work and sell my art. My work has been recognized and exhibited in both Europe and the United States.

I have exhibited extensively in the New York area, including: The Cervantes Institute, Manhattan, The Heckscher Museum, Greenwich Arts Center, The Chase Manhattan Bank, Merrill Lynch and Merrill Lynch Hispanic Heritage at the World Financial Center, the National Association of Women Artists, the Brooklyn Arts Council,   to mention a few.

I have an established group of collectors in Mexico, Spain, England, and The United States. In addition, I have exhibited in many public libraries, community arts councils, and educational facilities.

Improvisation with varied materials has become essential to my process, and I continually explore unusual mediums to create new effects. I am also actively involved in the production of etchings, collages, and sculptures. Primitive symbols, archetypal images and organic forms inhabit and inform much of the work.

Each of my paintings are made with many layers of materials built up over time, including burlap, clay, oil and acrylic paint, cement, and plaster. In some works I reuse scraps from old paintings, sewing pieces of canvas together to layer my own history. These pieces of canvas represent attachments, a force, connections, and the past. The heavily worked surfaces are sometimes drenched with water so the materials melt into each other. My process is similar to archaeology in that it deals with layers of history. I combine images from the past and present to create my own symbolic language. I am attempting to interpret my personal experience within a common visual code.
