Oils


It was a visit by Mary Jose to New England in the Fall, famous for its flaming colours, which finally precipitated a long-contemplated move into oil painting. The initial inspiration was landscape but she very quickly turned to abstraction: a style which came quite spontaneously when she expressed herself honestly and with abandon. Oil painting has become a true passion; on the one hand for the material itself, its colours, textures and the whole range of possibilities from transparency to the impasto of knife painting, and on the other hand its capacity to express the essential elements which have coloured her life: light, the harmony of Nature, the successive layers that make up human life and the interdependence of everything.
