Americanflat is proud to introduce artwork by our newest artist Marie Kazalia. Marie’s work engages with written aspects of world cultures such as combined, fragmented, enlarged and abstracted character forms. The techniques she uses involve paint layering, poured paints, stain painting and all the possibilities that these processes open up. Major influences on Marie Kazalia’s art include four years as an expatriate in Asia (primarily Japan, India and China) and the formal language studies she undertook there, including writing Chinese and Japanese language characters. Each of her paintings contains traces of what is significant to the artist — personal progress, growth, shifts, changes, expansions and forward motion. All this accumulation of thought and work, day upon day, is contained within the layers of Marie’s paintings, as form, color and texture merge in the spirituality of her abstract paintings.
Marie’s work is in permanent collection of:
– Museum of Modern Art, NY
– Museum of Modern Art, Wales
– Museu Brasileiro da Escultura, Sao Paolo, Brazil
