Mercè Humedas

Mercè Humedas al seu taller
Graduated in Arts and Crafts, specializing in painting at the School of Fine Arts of Lleida.

The artist has made illustrations for books, magazines and posters, such as the one for the Festa Major de Maig 2010 in Lleida.

She mainly produces works in acrylic and oil with a realistic tendency. She deals with interior themes in which images of daily life acquire transcendence and intimacy. Among the elements that define her work we find the way in which she works with light and shadow -as well as all her range of shades-seeking to create atmospheres, feelings, and emotions that retain moments that emanate a certain poetry.

Her paintings often speak of oblivion, of the fleetingness of time, of the reality that is diluted in time. Thus, she represents spaces where silence is felt, where the dust deposited by time on forgotten objects is seen; the ignored and unused books, the papers and filing cabinets that obstinately keep histories, records and lived experiences are reiterated. Windows and doors that open or close also appear frequently in her work; these images turn us into witnesses of other lives.
