Mara De Luca
Painter Mara de Luca (b. 1973) invites the sky inside. As a second-generation Italian based in Los Angeles, her city’s natural landscape is as much of a muse as the possibility of her artistic medium itself. She’s interested in alchemy: how paint can transform into something beyond its material reality. Through a slow, meditative process of blending colors and layering canvases, her work will make you forget that you’re in the presence of acrylics on fabric. Each resulting piece is better described as a feeling than a painting.
