Marela Zacarias


Rebosando (2010)

Mixed media; Dimensions variable


Rebosando overflows into the space with living energy creating a dialogue between the indigenous patterns of Mexican textiles and fine art. The artist intentionally links the idea of craft as a functional object with an everyday purpose, with the modern notion of a work of art that is autonomous from daily life and has no practical function. In the tradition of Mexican murals, Zacarias connects painting and social activism with an imposing presence that refuses to be ignored, both within the space and from the street.
