2014-02-06 01:07:18 - NEW YORK, NY – Chelsea’s Agora Gallery will feature the original work of of Malaga artist Marife Nuñez in Figuratively Speaking
Marife Nuñez makes digital paintings, a conglomeration of her extensive experience in painting, graphic design, and photography. The pieces are directly projected onto diverse substrates, from aluminum to wood to Plexiglas. In combining new technologies and classic techniques, she creates work that has limitless possibilities. Nuñez translates the concept of time in her work with transparencies and overlaying imagery, photographic and painted, to create concentrated space that is similar to that of the subconscious mind.
Often dealing with the figure, the artist often shrouds the body or face with imagery, conjuring a psychological tone in each work. This attitude is also emphasized by the Nuñez’s strong attention to light and shadow, as well as her ephemeral and fantastical color choices
in varied vibrant jewel tones of blues, purples, and magentas. The colliding transparency of both the imagery and the colors creates a dreamscape that links reality to fiction in a true questioning of the perception of the viewer. Emotionally, what remains and what is fleeting is at the core of Marife Nuñez’s work.
