What we love about Marcela
Marcela’s work centers on mythology and symbolism. In her collage as well as oil paintings, her vibrant human-animal creatures come to life. In “Quimera”, you’ll find that Marcela creates layers and depth that give her work a ghostly ethereal quality. Feathers where shoulder bones should be or hoofed legs jutting from feminine hips. Her work will make you wonder if these Latin creatures might leap off the canvas.
