About The Artwork

Drawing / Painting mixed media on fine art canvas Paper Hahnemühle 300g 40 x 30 cm ( 15,74 x 11,81 in). *Ships not framed. '18.40+1.VIII.II.MMXXI' is the continuation of '17 .17.XX.I.MMXXI' study on organic synchronicity. The experiment was to stop creating when I saw a mirror hour. At the moment when this hour was displayed my satisfaction of stopping drawing did not appear to me. In this search for synchronicity of time with the best aesthetic result of my creation, this time, it did not work. And despite all the effort to produce an impulsive work made of doodles and mark makings without premeditation, my aesthetic concerns pushed me to finalize my work not on a mirror hour but on a harmonious synchronicity between the background and the form. * '18.40+1.VIII.II.MMXXI' est la suite de '17.17.XX.I.MMXXI' étude sur la synchronicité organique. L'expérience était d'arrêter de créer lorsque je verrais une heure miroir. Au moment ou cette heure s'est affichée ma satisfaction de stopper de dessiner ne s'est pas présentée à moi. Dans cette recherche de synchronicité du temps avec le meilleur résultat esthétique de ma création n'a, cette fois-ci pas fonctionné. Et malgré tout l'effort de réaliser une œuvre impulsive faite de gribouillis de marques et de tâches sans préméditation, mon soucis d'esthétique m'a poussé à finaliser mon travail non pas sur une heure miroir mais sur une synchronicité harmonieuse entre le fond et la forme.

The work of Marijah Bac Cam questions the Memory of the Living through the Languages of the Feminine Principle (creative principle of Nature) by means of drawing, painting and increasingly photography and video. What does this chaos of fullness and emptiness mean, enhanced with dots, curves, golden wefts and gestural writing? In the artist's painting we perceive a Living being organized before our eyes, starting with the diffusion of black ink. These dark masses mingle with another color to symbolize the different elements, air, water, fire, earth, ether. Suddenly an organic mesh forms on the surface, connected to the misty depth. It is a question of reversal, as if to lead our gaze towards an inner world, that of the organs, tissues, vessels of an unrepresented body. These drawings express more sensibly an intuitive word in a vegetal and vibratory atmosphere that are our buried memories. They are the representation of the original past in a form that is no longer mental but metaphorical. Graffiti sometimes float here and there, like a palimpsest as if to inscribe a forgotten verbal dimension and question the meaning of forms. Her work evokes images that are almost figurative but difficult to identify. It's a question of everyone's point of view, seen from the sky or underwater, in macro or even in a wide shot. This collective memory seems to define and tell terrestrial and extra-terrestrial landscapes. Does Nature have a universal language that hides in our memory?
