“I look for the freedom that allows my painting to be everything. In a world where painting is too theorized I want to bring the anti-theory of its freedom.
I explore this desire of liberty approaching each work in a different way, knowing that paintings have the right to be what the painter wants them to be. In this sense I am motivated to search for a space of purity outside social constraints.”
–Cristina de Miguel
