Minas Gerais, 1966
Her paintings hold dialogues with the urban environment through photographic fragments and experimental collage. In a search for images, objects, places and materials the artist develops processes that create a new geometry.
Space functions like a grid, a rhizomatic structure where lines have no beginning or end and each point can be connected to any of the others. Marcela’s lines reach beyond the limits of her painting - they occupy space outside the frames.
