Claudia Marseille: Urban Markings
January 27 - February 28, 2018
In this newest body of work, Claudia Marseille explores what she calls “universal hieroglyphics” using as her inspiration photographs of walls she has taken herself in her many travels around the world. What she discovered is a morphed universal language where something becomes other than it was originally. By incorporating her images with their torn edges of advertisements, posters and graffiti into her encaustic paintings she captures the layered elements of time, communication and tattered bits of popular culture. She takes the scarred beauty she sees in these images and integrates them into masterful encaustic paintings.
