ANA MARINI - GENZON
“My art is about people and the way they experience their lives. I intend for my artwork to reflect emotions and thoughts. While creating sculptures and paintings, I try to suggest a story, not only of the moment but also of an entire life. Not only of what we can see, but what is invisible to the eyes. Art is always a mirror. That is why it is so powerful. It speaks not only about my subject, but also speaks about my perceptions. In the process of expressing the mood of the subject's substance, I constantly go deep inside myself searching for answers about human relations in this fast and ever changing world.” My work is a conversation in color inspired by the intricacies of nature. Through my paintings I explore texture, color and process. Texture is a significant component of my work as my goal is to create a surface, not just paint one.
