Marcelina Amelia is a contemporary artist, whose tactile work blends print, painting and drawing. Taking inspiration from religious iconography, dreams, and sexuality, her practice plays with the border between lust and innocence, to create a darkly beautiful aesthetic. For 'Algae', Amelia unsettles the traditional muse, by merging mermaid with drowned body. Thick daubs of paint, in shades of aqua, indigo, and turquoise, coalesce to create a haunting female figure, her face adorned with organic marine matter, as algae and seaweed fall like tears from azure eyes. Complex and mysterious, like the depths of the ocean, 'Algae' is a profoundly beautiful work of contemporary art.
