Born in Buenos Aires, Argentina where she lived until 2002, Bonini now in resides in Miami, Fl, since December 2011. The Art Place Wynwood is pleased to introduce the Wynwood Art District to the metaphysical paintings of Marcela Garcia Bonini.
Bonini has this to say about her latest works, “Miami has so much to offer in terms of color, sounds, scents, a rich culture and warm and friendly people. What I love the most to reflect on my paintings is the luxurious vegetation: the trees, the orchids, the parks, the lawns. I have my own vision of these and I have tried to reflect it on the works in the show. My idea is to show the power I see beyond the trunks and leaves, the energy that the trees have and transmit through their colors, shades and movement. I hope that my paintings can transmit the positive vibes that I feel when I immerse myself in nature.”
If you are intrigued, Bonini is offering an Artist Talk at 7 PM on Friday during the Opening Reception where we will learn more about her inspiration and techniques.
