Marcella Anna Stasa: Flora\Fauna

24 Oct – 15 Nov 2008
Looking to the natural world for both inspiration and material, Marcella Anna Stasa finds the visual beauty in life’s relics and melancholic remains in her latest body of work, Flora/Fauna. Using fragments of decayed and rusted materials in combination with nature’s perishable elements, Stasa speaks towards the interrelated processes of life and death. Through drawing, burning, painting, photography, beading, and wiring, Stasa manipulates raw materials in the creation of her collaged reliefs and delicately-constructed installations. Grisly and mysterious, the balance between decay and subtle beauty bestows an eloquent yet disconcerting power to Stasa’s work. This transformation of the Red Room engages the viewer in an environment of paradoxical sensation, eliciting both unease and awe.
