Marilina Marchica was born in Agrigento, now lives and works in Rome. Interested in different shades of reality, the protagonists of her artworks are the sign and the landscape. These dominant and contrasting elements together become the subject of the artist. The landscape is transformed, sometimes it is fragile and the signs of the past change continuously. In between order and disorder, chaos and cosmos, her images are poetic and rarefied and create an intimate and deep sense of belonging to the places. In works of art it appears an effective minimalist practice that captures the hidden dimension of landscapes in which time and places gather in the memory space of the observer.
After graduating from Michelangelo Art School in Agrigento, Marilina moved to Spain for the Erasmus project at the Polytechnic University of Valencia and in 2008 graduated in Painting at the Academy of Fine Arts in Bologna. She has participated in numerous exhibitions in Italy and abroad.
