Susana Mata transfers to contemporarity the pictorical conception as an essential search that ignores the superfluous, the narrative, to deepen into sensations and memories deposited in an image.

Wide ranges of colors that oscillate between earthy and vermilion, cerulean and turquoise, build scenes harmony succumbs to the dynamic force of the diagonals; Peaceful subjects (swimmers, sleepers ...) are subjected to biased planes that take us in paradoxical scenaries. Activities such as painting, nap or diving in the water are excuses to retreat in oneself. Scenarios in which the figure is isolated, even in company.
