Back to the Future Series

Back to the Future

is meant to lead into the past, where the matriarchy still worked. 

It will also give same view into the future, where the interaction of 

matriarchy and patriarchy a new harmonious and logical way of life corresponds.

The sixth sense is to be given more emphasis and thus better express 

the modified shape, which is not only ratio.

Those watching my works have the possibility of going out on a discovery trip

and thus decoding the concealed symbols and geometric signs

in their own manner. 

The whole thing should be a debate stimulating our part

unilateral perception. The superficiality of the society should be 

questioned and bring more depth in dealing with our observation!

Forms and signs become a language of their own and are often

composed of hieroglyphs 

and sign elements from past cultures.

I think that what any great art work can do, is serve to point out that no answer can be found in the form of the formless.

Power of Music © by Manuella Muerner Marioni

Not limited to physical pieces, Manuella maintains a place in the contemporary art world with

her foray into digital media. Graphically redesigning her mirror sculpture and renaming it

Power of Music adds yet more layers to the piece, forcing the viewer to look at the work in an entirely new respect

and reaching out to a whole new audience.

Manuella Muerner Marioni's artwork is some of the most uniquely made art in today's society. Her use of vibrant color

and mirrored mosaic tiles are what captivates the audience.

Manuella's art also captures the modernity of today's society while successfully giving the

"vintage" feel of historical pieces that allows her artwork to be adored and appreciated 

by both older and newer generations.

Philosophy of my Mirror Sculptures

Through my work I want to break out of the rigid social order, create tensions and to bring about a vivid confrontation with the issues of "form, light and colors". My fascination has always been the play of light in the crystals, in the water, and especially the light fraction of sunlight through the prism.

From dead to life! Pure matter to bring to life through specific perceptual effects. For me as an artist, a great challenge. I want to raise not only my work in the center. The surroundings and environment of my beholders should become a part in my artwork. All these details have to give a contribution to the totality of the artwork. How can you represent that?

The three-dimensional sculptures, covered with mirror pieces, which reflect a confrontation with the sculpture and surroundings. Each individual mirror fragment I cut by hand with a diamond cutter.

The perceived image of my sculptures changes every time when I move to a new location or when I change my perspective. Even my clothes are scattered reflected back. My sculptures convey the mystery of a never ending visual experience!
