Name: Maria Dolores Gil
Bio: Maria Dolores Gil was born in Seville (Spain) in 1943. Her father, Professor Don Segundo Gil taught her to paint with oils and watercolors; but she herself developed her pastel technique, which she uses most frequently. She studied further under the painters Don Elias Ferrer and Don Amalio García del Moral. Her work is mainly based on traditional themes of land and the rural environment, light, landscapes, flowers and a myriad of images that show the artistic maturity that springs from her brushes and her love of Andalusian customs.
The numerous solo and group exhibitions in Spain are witness to Maria’s expertise and reputation, and underscore her mastery of the medium. Barcelona, Gerona, Marbella, Oviedo, and above all, her native Seville, have been successful arenas for her paintings, since the fateful day in 1992 when she decided to unveil her talent to public scrutiny.
A standard-bearer for her native Andalusia, Maria’s painting lovingly evoke Spanish customs and ancestry, exciting regular admiration. The press has been universally complimentary, with remarks such as "The works of this artist demonstrate throughout her artistic maturity, exemplified in her use of light and colour”; and "Throughout the exhibition shine everyday items and the ease with which they are treated. The canvases are full of tenderness and poetry"
Maria Dolores Gil Gutiérrez has her studio at Avenida 1o de Mayo, no 28, Gerena, Seville.
