"Spirit of Water" Linocut by Liliana Gerardi.
“My art work ranges from symbolic to abstract. I am inspired by primitive art, aboriginal art, as well as art with spiritual significance like that of Klee or Kandinsky. I work intuitively without previous sketches and I like it that way. I like curved lines, free as flowing water, the circle in my work is a generator of energy and I prefer it red.”
