This exhibition takes the viewer on a tour from realism to abstraction. Artist Marcelle Zanetti’s large-scale, realistically inspired, distillations of tropical landscapes at close range celebrate abstraction; from a distance, their energy changes to the lush energy of tropical flora. Built up pigments create rich, multilayered compositions. This emphasis draws the viewer in to observe how the color, light, movement, and composition all combine.
The infrastructure of natures beauty has been compromised in our cities, landscapes and rural areas. The quest for technology and sources of revenue have ignored their impact to future generations. Zanetti’s
recent paintings are sympathetic to these global compromises. Through the discovery of this abstract language, a painted dialogue has been created addressing art history, technology, nature, and environmental changes.
Starting with plastic bottles in combination with natural and man-made invasive species, her first series created a bridge between realism and abstraction.
Technical gadgets prompted manipulation of images through computer posterization. This coupled with the Orphic Movement of the early 20th century produced Zanetti’s next series.
A love of minimalism and art history produced paintings evolving rising water. Our Corporate work ethic bore a Moving and Nonstop Series.
Sensitivity to our surroundings has been the catalyst of these organic variations. Zanetti continues this dialogue through her paintings in order to express, as well as stimulate thoughts concerning the necessary balance between consumerism, abuse and reclamation by nature.
