Lives and work in Barcelona

 

 

 

 

 

 

Hi, I’m Gina Pórtera, I dedicate my life to developing my passion for art in the disciplines of painting, sculpture and photography.

I was born into a well-off family from where I learned a lot about what is really important in life. I’ll give you a summary that is sure to be useful for you. What can define me most is an enormous taste for observation and the need to live with beauty. I have always established a common thread between what I observe and the emotion that it generates. Consequently, and given that life has endowed me with a great talent for the arts, I have always looked for ways to leave an inspirational mark and live emotions from the connection with art.

For many years my painting focused on my interest in expressing the internal states of the human being. His silent characters seek spaces of intimacy to understand existence.

In these years in my work were traces of Italian classicism, revised with a clear influence of the geometric depuration of Giorgio Morandi, the coincidence with Edward Hopper to express the feeling of uprooting that the big city produces, as well as with David Hockney in his formal interpretation of reality.

Given that evolution is inevitable in an artist, today I am faced with a new focus of observation and attention that nourishes my creative imagination. Nature takes over and my brushes capture abstractions from biological forms through which I express all my emotionality. You can glimpse the influence of Victor Vasarely and the Op Art to which I contribute the biology of natural forms
