Almudena Pintado often surrenders herself to the spontaneous progression of her creative process. Rather than adhering to a predetermined concept, Pintado embraces the unexpected, allowing the emotions and energy of the moment to guide her work. This approach frequently leads to a final result that is largely improvised, showcasing the fluidity and freedom of her artistic expression. Pintado’s intuitive method, which is at times almost inadvertent, enables her to unearth novel techniques and continuously evolve as an artist. By relinquishing control and resisting the urge to confine her work within rigid boundaries, she embarks on a captivating artistic journey. Each piece, in essence, becomes an adventure of self-discovery and experimentation, with the destination remaining unknown until the work reaches its conclusion.
