Behind the Scenes Studio Visits: Myrna Quiñonez at Spike Island


A behind-the-scenes studio visit at Spike Island. This is a chance to explore artists' and makers' studios, to see their working environments, their process, and works-in-progress in an informal and friendly setting.

In this visit you'll meet artist Myrna Quiñonez in her studio at Spike Island. Quiñonez is a landscape painter interested in how the concept of landscape painting has changed through history, and what can be represented by the artist depending on the cultural context and the tools available.

Quiñonez's work explores repetitive patterns in nature and the impact that new media, screens and technology have on us, influencing the way we perceive the world. As a result, her paintings often look like they have been digitally rendered. Absence, fragmentation and movement are also key characteristics of her work.

Accompanied by Spike Island Assistant Curator, Rosa Tyhurst, during this studio visit you'll learn about Quiñonez's painting process, exploring traditional oil painting and pigments, and her working practice, which combines painting outdoors in-situ, as well as working from photos in her studio.

Myrna Quiñonez is a Mexican artist working with painting. She studied Fine Arts at Guanajuato University, Mexico. She lives in Bristol, and has recently set up studio at Spike Island. In 2021, she was awarded a Developing Your Creative Practice (DYCP) grant from the Arts Council.

Quiñonez has exhibited her work widely, and some recent exhibitions include Intersections, Painting Center, New York (2019) and Esto es ahora (This is Now), Contemporary Art Auction from Morton Subastas, Mexico City. She was the winner of the XX National Visual Art Contest, Museo Iconográfico del Quijote, Guanajuato, Mexico and the Bristol Plein Air Paint Off, Cass Art, Bristol.
