M.D. Rubio ("Maloles") has had a gratifying career as a full-time artist since the 1970's. She studied with the masters/teachers of her city, Barcelona, until she had developed her own uniquely signature style. What Rubio is looking for in her work is a kind of a balance between shape and line, hot and cold, peace and madness, improvisation and measurement. She loves the idea of "a painting inside another painting", that's why so often there are trees, blinds, windows and curtains dividing the space of her paintings. She has shown in galleries and museums in Spain, France and in the United States to great acclaim and success.
