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.

Invitation


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.
