Marina Pallares from Mexico
"I think painting has always been my destiny, because throughout my life, certain unexplainable things keep happening that lure me to the path of the fine arts.
"I have exhibited my work individually and collectively in Jalisco, San José del Cabo and Hamburg, Germany.
"I define myself as an eternal seeker. I don't like labeling myself or my work, so as soon as someone else tries to place me in a category or classification, I rebel and I change. It's just that it's early in my career and it would be dangerous, professionally speaking, to label me already.
"I enjoy having the biggest array of instruments available to express myself. In other words, I adapt techniques according to the theme that I'm working on.
"Most of my themes revolve around people and ordinary activities such as drinking coffee, riding a bike or dancing. Although sometimes I can be more complicated and express my dreams, my feelings, and other personal issues."
