"Life is beautiful" is a wonderful example of this, as Marcel puts it, "Freedom of Movement" expression. Having prepared the canvas in a special way he starts to apply immense amounts of oil paint to the canvas and as he goes along he is starting to see things in what he is doing. Some times it stays abstract but, as he is applying more colour, very often, faces, animals, birds, fishes, flowers, structures transpire. Marcel says "What seems to be a chaos becomes organised. What's random suddenly makes sense. Sometimes. Maybe." He goes on "It's a little bit like in this life. We just have to walk and see. To know that it is ok just to be, found that very liberating."
Marcel has been exhibiting in the UK, Belgium, Switzerland and in Italy in 2012,2013 and 2014. This year he will be exhibiting in the UK, US, Japan, Scandinavia and Italy. Both solo and in group exhibitions.
Brief Artist statement:
I wish for my art to create a universe from a viewpoint of peace and tranquillity. I intend for my works to be expressive and passionate while delicate in shape and composition. I very much like to work with colours and spend quality time on the execution but also on the concepts that I am trying to communicate eloquently. I believe that my work can be defined as "Art of the Mind" but also as "Art of the Spirit", touching upon ideas and sentiments that are important and too often neglected. I like my paintings to be able to speak to and intrigue the viewer.
