Redidue 3 by Marisa Purcell


Acrylic on linen | 137 x 112

The essential tone of a colour, and its emotional resonance is Marisa’s primary motivation. In its essence, painting can saturate the viewer with a connective feeling – one that bypasses the verbal and acts as a mirror. In her practice, she uses multi-layered surfaces which change depending on the viewing angle. Marisa has developed a distinctive language of abstraction which calls to mind the way our perception functions and invites the viewer to become aware of the act of looking. The compositions convey a sensation of warped space, revealing her interest in perception. There is a dynamic tension in Marisa’s paintings between amorphous floating fields of colour and the veiled edges they sit upon.
