Marcela Albitos at Agora Gallery

. September 7, 2009

The brilliant colors and dazzling forms that characterize the tradition of Latin American art are still found in contemporary painting today. The talented artists collected here channel their zest for life, transforming it into energetic paintings that explore the individual world while celebrating the beautiful people and places that surround it. Masters of the Imagination offers a rare chance to experience the nuances of fine art by Latin American artists, not merely with the eyes, but the heart.
Marcela Albitos channels color’s contemplative power. Her paintings are rhythmically composed, creating a peaceful visual space for viewers. Yet Albitos’ interpretation of peace is far from uneventful; the movement of her marks carries the eye through each composition, engaging an expressive dialogue between color, gesture and space. In Albitos’ work, mark-making becomes its own language. She uses this language, a private system of symbols, to articulate ineffable ideas about human life, translating her observations onto canvas. She envisions expanses of earthen hues, choruses of organic lines, surfaces full of diffuse, clouded pigment or planes interrupted by particles of light. Harmony is Albitos’ ultimate goal; she aims to bring the parts of her compositions together so that they become one sublime sensory experience.

Albitos studied business and communications at Universidad Anahuac in Mexico City before pursuing visual art. She has since exhibited her work in both solo and group shows. She lives and works in Mexico City.
