ANOTHER REALITY OF THE LANDSCAPE IN THE HANDS OF MARION ALBRECHT
In the work of Marion Albrecht, we have observed for years a commitment to the realities that surround her and to nature,
she is an artist sensitive to the events of the world. In this series she is an interpreter of environmental art that she has
initiated in many of her previous works on ecology and the environment, in concepts and in a set of plastic experiences,
raised in a vital and clear language with which she expresses herself.
In this group of works, Marion uses a series of peculiar symbologies that adapt to figurative - abstract forms that she uses:
faces and female bodies transformed into trees that cry for freedom, silence and peace, acts in which they must be protected and conserved.
That is what I feel in each work, these images express much of their proper concerns and personal visions.
It is difficult to make an approach on the theme of nature, especially when you want to denounce,
pose or solve the disasters that the ecosystem now suffers. The landscapes have always served for the recreation of the beauty
that fascinates nature, that is, the landscape as a genre; but this has gone down in history, now the vision is different,
they are other realities. Now the contamination, the merciless exploitation of soils, the new phenomena of geodynamics,
mining exploitation, lack of water, etc. are observed. All this is becoming symbolic forms in the new work of Marion,
to propose solutions and create collective awareness about these problems.
Marion paints her imaginary flashing, displaces the plastic forms by constructing - with layers of color films that she prepares previously -
and finding the precise lace of the forms as if they were foliages that are placed on her canvases.
This series is composed of phrases dedicated to nature, as if the trees spoke and the faces said the same thing,
because she is faithful to herself with implacable desire to express herself.
I like Marion's creative freedom, she is not tied to any stereotype or style, she lets her creative mind and hand move through the canvas,
and on the way she leaves the brushstrokes and color clean. It is her own poetry that transforms into the language of the trees,
which cry out, that ask for peace and protection; she paints the barks and the branches as if they were their pain next to some face
interspersed with the trunk, birds that are tied to the trees because they are a lair or property of them under a distant moon.
These are incomparable color forms that surround the central theme. When she has arrived at what she wants to express,
she stays there, no other element enters, the poem and the pictorial work are accomplished.
This collection brings us closer to these "landscapes" of nature, or rather to another reality of the landscape,
managed with the rigor of a painter who always experiences new languages and themes, as in this case.
Who is involved to convey the importance and urgency of keeping our natural heritage clean,
because nature will continue to be a claimant theme and illumination of artists.
MARION ALBRECHT: Congratulations for your commitment and the action of supporting the defense of nature,
few do, and this responsibility is valuable in a person like you who maintains the cultural debate.
