EXHIBITION: Yolanda del Riego. Thirty Years of Works on Paper 1977–2007
A selection of 47 works on paper by Yolanda del Riego from the 30-year period between 1977 and 2007. The exhibition included drawings, watercolors, prints made using a variety of printmaking techniques, collages of torn-up prints and digital images.
Yolanda del Riego is one of the best examples we have in Spain of an artist who has chosen paper as the support for their creations. …
...in her richly diverse body of work we encounter everything from traditional woodcuts to the digital images she creates on a computer. This search for new effects, always within the strictest technical rigor, is what drives her to manipulate and print the plates herself (whichever types they may be: wood, linoleum, copper, zinc, steel), and to create her own digital files. …
...an astonishing mastery of color, a profound and sincere love for Nature and deep sensitivity, along with the explosive force of the shapes and colors in her work -these are all qualities that characterize the work of this artist. And they are all the result of a vital and lifelong career dedicated to art, driven by a passion for experimentation and continuous learning.
