¨...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....”

¨ ... 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. ¨

¨Irma already take part of the world of fantasy and surrealism bringing about in audience from smiles until restlessness. (...) With a big creative capacity, this tireless artist come in witn ability into some techniques, among encaustic, bringing up her artwork an outstanding chromatic feature.¨

¨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).¨

¨...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.¨
MASTER ARTURO JOEL
“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.

“ A través de esta colección se observa una nueva y lustrosa efigie de Irma Gutiérrez, quien nos muestra a culminación de una serie de migraciones tanto geográficas como interiores, transitadas por la artista a lo largo de los útimos 5 años y que concluyen con una serena madurez que evidencia el establecimiento de un pequeño pero apacible reino, (...) anclado en el ensueño legendario de una tierra que hoy le resulta propia, porque emite cual sutil revelación, los llamados de otra vivas y de otros encuentros.
Como en cualquier migración, la transformación es inevitable, más hoy pareciera que en el susurro brindado por el silencio del norte, Irma ha emprendido el retorno a su esencia primigenia, despojandose de los fuertes contrastes del blanco y el negro. Extrayendo de los fríos grises del entorno el color propio del remanso y del reencuentro, en el cual se ha instalado ya los compañeros de viaje elegidos; formando un pequeño consejo que rije el devenir de lo importante y lo trascendente (...)”
