“Nature and the Divine are my inspirations. I paint images of my dreams, from memory,” and thus remarked Marivic Rufino, in one of several interviews with the artist whose works one regards as great stress-busters. It is a fitting compliment to an artist whose brush has dipped into the still, quiet waters of contemplation. For Marivic Rufino, art has been a healing sanctuary. In her works, one partakes of an art that is stripped of excrescences and senseless adornments.
