Marisa González is a pioner artist that applies new technologies in the comumunication and reproduction in her creative work.
She graduated at The Music Conservatory of Bilbao, at the School of Fine arts in Madrid in 1971, MFA at the Art Institute of Chicago in 1973 at the Generative Systems Deparment and BFA at the Corcoran School of art in Washington DC 1976.
All her artistic work is influenced and related with new technologies in continuous change in our contemporary society, from her first works with copy machines, at the beginning of the seventies, to the works that followed with the use of computers and video.
In the symbiosis between art and technology and using the methodology of mixing different techniques, Marisa G, has generated a new language codified by her. The reproduction of the images, and their fragments and their repetition, as a form of generating emblematic values, is also persistent in all her work.
