“I share with Irma some affinities. We are Drawers and Engravers. We also lean towards a neo-figuration no exempt of monstrosity. Strangely, the hybrid characters of her, half-human beings, half-beasts give me the same anguished feeling that I had long ago when I illustrated Franz Kafka in New York, almost fifty years ago (...) I am sure that the work of this exceptional artist is aimed to catch the attention of specialized Art critics (...) due to she is the depositay, among other values, of a mature art style by her own”

¨ ... A great drawing, a personal poetic (...), showing figures surrounded by mysticism as it seems to be herself I think as an artist Irma communicates with Expressionism- Figurative-Surrealism those three genres can combine and express. This is summarized in who has worked with passion and is preparing a story, (...) I said this with love and the fact that someone is doing a serious work, I wish her the best fortune for believing in what her do. ¨
“I was surprised when I saw the work of Irma Gutierrez. She is a excellent artist and also sells at affordable prices... Irma is not well known in Guadalajara”, adds. “But Jose Luis Cuevas has very with comments about her and Sergio Garval has also shown admiration about her artwork. She is an artist who will become very important ¨, concludes with his sharp-eye as dealer, the same that supported artists like Alejandro Colunga or Maximino Xavier in time.

¨The election of the graphic art as a means develops from the passion Irma has for this technique, and however, it fits well to the reinterpretation of the nineteenth century Novels that we localize close to the summit of the bindings that included splendid examples of manner scenes in print of dry top. The deviation as a style (Cohen), can not be better conceived, since even accusing a clear influence of her mentor -Cuevas- , Irma has achieved to find her own establishing the deformation as an analogy of the psyche, but in one hand conserving the composition of the realistic engraving and in the other hand the undisputable contemporaneousness of the Jungian archetype, from which she heads off in order to update and revitalize highly stereotyped characters, completing gaps in the undetermined (Eco) to achieve the characters’ saturation beyond the cultural rules of the representation (Barthes).¨

¨...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....”

¨...I perceive you in both extremes; from the apparent simplicity of the drawing, fine and safe, until the opposite side; in the denial of the world’s subtle and safe fantastic line. Up to coming to the interior pain, where it is born as a “cold” shout, (like Edward Munich), without a face, a playful being without balance, from the unavoidable mimetism that is suffered in that walk, product of being here and today. It’s enough to discover yourself in that path that you will never be able to abandon, because you will always be in there.¨
"(...) As in any migration, transformation is inevitable, but today it seems that in the whisper provided by the silence of the north, Irma has undertaken a return to her original essence, shedding the strong contrasts of black and white. She extracting from the cold gray of the environment the own color of the haven and of the reunion, in which she has already installed her chosen travel companions; forming a small council that governs the future of what is important and transcendent (...)”
