HUMUS 30x40 watercolour print
The watercolour prints by Marta Cruz approach the relationship between space and time, expressed through colour and composition. Using them as instruments, the designer works with an interplay of different shapes and layers. Interested in the complexity of colours, she never uses them in a raw way, but individually and intuitively searches the shades for each painting.
“I never have a previous idea. I start painting and then the painting takes me along.” Marta Cruz
STRATA & HUMUS are a family of two pieces referring to utopian landscapes, created by layering colors. Being figurative but not realistic, they are an echo of landscapes the artist experienced while travelling in nature. STRATA focusing on the sky and HUMUS on the soil, they are complementing yet contrary.
