Born in Barcelona, of Catalan parents, Trinidad lived in Spain and Latin America before moving to England where she has lived for many years. Her formal training was at Central St Martin’s, London. The interaction of colour is the basis for her work. “I’m excited by bright, strong colour and the drama created by darkness and light,” she says. Inspired by the Spanish masters and moved by the colours of Van Gogh, Trinidad’s paintings display fine technique, and an assured, heightened sense of colour and form.
“For me each painting is a challenge and an adventure. Observation is the key, working with the composition and background, this compels me to paint. Through the use of thin layers of high pigment oil paint, my aim is to render a translucent and luminous painting that gives the viewer the illusion of high realism”. Trinidad is also a Marmite lover!
Trinidad will be in attendance all day on Sunday 13 February at Skylark 2 Gallery and will be available to meet visitors and talk about her work and that of her colleagues.
