Artist Statement

Judit Prieto's artworks are part of the first and second series of Memories from Childhood developed in 2015-2017. This body of work creates a visual language. Her prints from each Series are the result of the exploration and play of different geometric shapes and primary colours. In these series, the geometric shapes are semi circles, rectangles, and triangles. Colour and form take a journey from representation towards abstraction, an open-ended journey which allows a sense of freedom and expression. This shift in the creative process is due to her increase in meditation practice in connection with nature and during her work. In her practise she uses techniques such as oil painting, printmaking, drawing and watercolour in making her art. This helps her to have a range of expressive ways to go further in her making process.
