BERTA MARIA MARENCO GUTIERREZ
1949- Granada, Nicaragua
The work of Berta Marenco is a triumph of color over form that launches us on a voyage of abstract imaginations. The expressive colorizations are ripe with emotion.
Berta points to Uruguayan man of letters - Eduardo Galeano - as her mentor and friend. Someone who influenced her work.
“Eduardo” she says, “was a great defender of the truth. He taught me not to lie in my work, not to copy. To express the beauty of the truth. Each of us is a separate soul, a soul that has eyes and those eyes are what is being projected.”
