Marguerite Zorach
Painter

While self-identifying as a Post-Impressionist, Marguerite Zorach was more prominently known as a pioneer of modernism in the United States. Her work was strongly influenced by Fauvism in the early 20th century, her boldly painted landscapes defined by strong saturated color and solid curving black outlines. Zorach exhibited in the 1913 Armory Show before expanding her practice into embroidery and textile art, and was continually progressive throughout her life, saying, “an art intent on expressing the inner spirit of persons and things will inevitably stray from the outer conventions of color and form.”

American, 1887-1968, Santa Rosa, California.

The same word was chosen by Mara Palena to call a project that unfolds over the duration of existence. The analog images shot by the artist from her childhood to today do not follow any external precept. (more…)
