The major creative focus of Marilina Marchica has always been with urban architecture and landscapes. As a result, in her mixed-media, minimalist art, 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.
Marilina Marchica was born in Agrigento, Italy on June 16, 1984. She studied at Art school and graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Bologna. Since her graduation, Marilina participated in several exhibitions in Italy and abroad.
