Today is the big day. When I post this blog, I am en route to Bologna airport, Italy accompanied by my beautiful and sweet friend. We will attend the opening of the “Little Treasures” exhibition wherein four of my artworks are exhibited for two weeks.
Writing this blog, I remember clearly the process enfolding while taking a pause before I moved onto my last layers and finishing touch. For a few days my eyes and mind were only observing and absorbing possibilities. I knew I had to make a bold movement, so I took my grey’s and blacks to add more contrast. I kept on mixing and blending colors and reducing shapes. At some point in my process it feels I'm working in a flow, I absolutely love it when I enter this zone, I like to compare it with riding a wave. You just go with the flow. Likewise I can recognize flow I also know with certain assurance when my work is reaching the finish line. That beautiful sensation of taking a deep breath and to feel the satisfaction about the work that was brought into existence through my being.
And here they are, may I present to you this series: People
People by Annemarie Marcinek
Through abstract forms and vibrant colours, this series, people, invites you to dive deeper into the process and desire for unification. Themes that are addressed are the need for revolution and celebration, but also the pain of exclusion and the longing for revelation.
My intention with People is to express a collection of thoughts, actions, emotions and desires of a collective. In search for unification and Life, what is needed to achieve that state of being. Every painting is titled individually: Exclusion, Revolution, Celebration and Revelation.
I hope you appreciate these works as much as I do and that you have enjoyed reading about my creative process for the exhibition in Bologna.
