"No artist tolerates

                  reality"                      -Nietzsche

The concept of my artwork is based on labyrinths of the human mind trying to confront the character with its reflection on Nature; are we really those we look at? The coexisting whispers of those who become almost a forgotten remembrance  due to risk of extinction.

Echoes and whispers are reflected into those mirrors based on memories of lost Nature histories, folktales and myths -her, our interior myths, passions, demons and her, our secrets-, finally face up to a duality that is constituted into the complexity/easiness of our being.  Images of absences, steamed up in front of silence and mystery of what lives inside of us and where Nature is taking itself. In which moment do our thoughts take form, and when do we get lost in them?

 

¨...Carefully consider her art works, no matter prints or paintings, all of them are like the myths and legends, full of mysterious and fascinating visions. It is not hard to see that, (...), European and American mixed modern culture gives Irma’s art bold and unrestrained strength. (...) These stories are either strange and obscure, or familiar and with witty humor. Although it needs time to completely understand them, I believe that many friends like me, have interest to know her art....”
