The major creative focus of Marilina Marchica has always been with urban architecture and landscapes.
As a result, she de-contextualizes segments
and individual parts of landscapes and places and gives them a new
perspective in her abstract paintings. Also, Marilina believes, that when the
artwork is free of any form, space becomes more of a sensation and a
painting material becomes a protagonist. In this process, objects find new forms and different meanings. Therefore, through the artist’s mixed-media
minimalist artworks, the viewer travels through feelings of unknown
places, abandoned spots of their own memory.
