About The Artwork

landscape mineral oxide on paper 69x100 cm 2021 original art Marilina Marchica orients her pictorial research to the theme of subtraction, her attention is focused on the aesthetic and conceptual implications of the trace and the material, through the investigation and observation of architecture. Urban architecture takes on a symbolic value. ruins, houses, demolitions and collapses are a metaphor for an existential dimension and the relationship between man, nature and time. Marilina Marchica works inside the ruins, dilapidated houses, in her family's homes now empty and abandoned and through simple but radical actions she leaves an ephemeral and non-invasive sign in the landscape, from which she draws symbolic elements which, decontextualized, allow access to another reality, starting from these traces she draws, rereads, traces the finds of a place that has now changed through silicone molding, frottage, collage, décollage, the artist preserves the memory of places abandoned and perforated by time. In this exploration the figure loses its sovereignty in favor of the work process. The fragment is the only possible form to rewrite, the fracture is an area of instability and turbulence where to experience a fibrillation so from the collapse of the ruins and through the fall the "Fragment" is born. The living space thus becomes an infinite possibility of focusing on a form without borders. For Marilina Marchica, form and matter have become adorable remains of an ephemeral geography, miniature landscapes snatched from oblivion. As the Persian poet Rumi states, "if the form disappears its root is eternal", The purpose of the research is not the form but the reflection that arises from it or around it”

Marilina Marchica, born in Agrigento, where she works and lives, she graduated in Painting at the Academy of Fine Arts in Bologna in 2008. Her research is oriented towards a reflection on the theme of subtraction and on the aesthetics of the sign at the limit of abstraction thanks to an investigation of architecture and the wall as an internal / external diaphragm. The dividing surface, in particular, "the wall or border" takes on a marked symbolic value in relation to collapses and demolitions as a metaphor for a universal and existential dimension. Her works are present in many private and public Contemporary Art Collections. ...My painting tells of the relationship between man, nature and time, the landscape, the sign and the trace, through the stripping, reduction and subtraction of figurative elements. "my landscapes are" boxes "of memories, day after day they welcome events and individuals who leave their marks and change their boundaries and appearance
