About The Artwork

Mixed media on fine art watercolor Hahnemühle "Moulin Du Coq" paper 425 g/m² 40 x 30 cm. Delivered not framed. Part of the series "Above Lisbon" directly created after my last travel to Lisbon. This series is an abstract vision from plane above the beautiful Capital of Portugal. Abstraction is an infinite space of expression. Since I am young, as far I can remember, I loved to lost myself in an abstract shape, a task on a wall, a color...I could see another world inside. I am still faithful to the little girl in me who looked at the world with more interest to the hidden things in depth than in surface. Abstract shapes are to me the representation of what is inside or what is in the other side of a thing, an idea, the organic part of a body.

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?
