"Painting in myopinion is the world which Ilike moving. It is the way to express my inner world, my memories, my manner of seeing the nature, the people, it is a way to see everything at the same time. It also reflects the reality, but alternating it, composing, adding, playing with the possibilities that composition, colour and movement give to me.

This is the way to express everything I keep inside when I am in front of a model, a countryside or things, etc. I'm seeing images in my mind, which sieves and moulds them. My imagination paints, they're not my hands, I look but I don't see. Sometimes my minds goes quicker running images than my hands can do in a linen. It is a whirl of images (situations)".

""To her good technical job, Rosa Escalona Marín joins something very important : imagination. And that, in an artist means an opened door towards the triumph".


""There is a tendency to the plastic investigation. Her drawing domain stands out with efficiency the anecdote or her subjects which are shown with a clean, vibrant and juicy colouring. "

A. Fernandez Molina (El Día)

"The painting process in Rosa starts from the daily environment, which she takes the ideas from, and these things exposed to an imaginative, fertil and naughty vein, the become done with the contribution of new argumental elements. That belong to a caused reality. An eminently lively painting, a mistery in other matters for the most fervent expressionism. The alchemy of this linens is the result of a wide and mixed palette in which the warm colours prevail; certain effects are reinforced with a moderate and ocassional use of collage".

"Rosa Escalona is an artist with notable training, she uses several materials to perform a work with great pictorical values.

They are oils, gouaches, watercolours, all running over paper or material, achievements that take the nature like a point of reference to be a nest of tones with balances and concordances".
