Claudia Marseille: Journeys
September 1 - September 28, 2012
Artist reception: Saturday, September 8 from 6 until 8pm
Claudia Marseille’s exhibition features multi-layered works in encaustic and oil inspired by the Bay Area and her recent travels in Scandinavia and Argentina. The paintings do not attempt any literal translation of her travel experiences, but present an internal landscape where, in her words
"Discarded objects, recycled materials, graffiti, torn flyers, rusted metal all provide a bridge
between my inner world and the outer landscape of urbanization and globalization. I apprehend
and appreciate the life and beauty that urbanity offers us-- weathered through time, distinguished
by history, and marked by human presence."
