This April, Marla E is taking her art to the next level at Mills Gallery.
“Creating is a huge part of my life. My paintings explode with texture, color and space, infusing geometry with organic freedom.“
Marla E’s medium is a combination of plaster and acrylic paint. She has pushed simple drywall plaster farther than the average builder. Marla sculpts a surface texture, then layers paint onto the plaster. This process re-activates the plaster and re-invents her surface while Marla paints. She calls this Urban Plaster.
For this show Marla E is creating fun, bold and new cut-away shapes! The square and rectangular format in which most art is created is now giving way to circles, curves and waves.
With a strong background in Abstract design Marla E challenges boundaries and adds an element of surprise.
