Between heaven and earth
Marion Albrecht - The Colour of Time
Marion Albrecht's colours generate an earthy energy. Painterly and animated her artworks awaken a dream-like sequence
of transitory and ephemeral narratives on life. As gestural expressionist textured paintings they embody a strong
illusionistic and transformational presence. It's a presence that exists in the human consciousness. It`s an essence!
Figuration and colour merge or diverge, and always suggest a story. And these stories are like memories, so personal and symbolic.
These paintings are spiritual and process oriented as immediate in their effect as a song.
Albrecht's paintings bring us to a point of consciousness and her visual dialogue embraces male and female archetypes simultaneously…
Sometimes we see enigmatic and gestural paradoxes in these paintings , the ghosts of other places, other times,
and then suddenly they express something intimate an inner harmony and unity. Albrecht's paintings inhabit a cultural and archetypal
space that draws on personal experience. These paintings are filled with dreams of the earth, and expectations of a relatedness
to something larger than ourselves, perhaps ancient but equally familiar and understandable. Albrecht's painting is a cry for respect
for the integrity and cultural survival of all the peoples of this earth.
These expressionistic paintings, each so different, represent micro-stages in a growing body of work Albrecht is developing
that is not tied to historical or post-historical tautologies or the grammar of contemporary fashion...
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.
... 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.
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.

In the woods there are things,
En los bosques hay cosas
