PRESENTATION

The cycle of visual creation is not completed without the viewer's gaze. The person who sees, looks, feels admiration, restlessness or wonder in front of an image, is closing a circle that opens up new possibilities of understanding and aesthetic knowledge.

The images of Mapi Rivera acquire their maximum expression when they materialize from digital archives to tangible artworks, printed and enlarged in different sizes that stimulate the contemplation and the intimate enjoyment, ennobling at the same time the spaces that we inhabit.

The acquisition of these works, created through a slow and complex maturation process, both at a conceptual and technical level, supposes a support for the author's artistic career and becomes patronage for new projects.

From the beginning and over twenty years of artistic dedication, Mapi Rivera has created a corpus of imaginal and theoretical sense that has been presented in numerous exhibitions and can now be purchased through this website, as well as in the Art Galleries with which she collaborates. Her main means of expression are photography and drawing treated as a sketch in her artist's notebooks, as well as video, poetry and research texts.
