I try to express the mystery of life and existence through the visual arts

Maria Rapela, is fine art and visual artist that seeks to express the mystery of life and existence through the use of forms, colors, lines, structures in space, with the intention of achieving an aesthetic and plastic experience. The elaboration of forms is like the elaboration of ideas and thoughts, dances, poetry, but of the order of the visual and material ones.
Some of her most recurrent themes are related to the tensions that exist between being, being in space, identity, being with others in the world, dialogue as encounter, coexistence and the embodiment of the encounter between beings who love each other.

Art in motion

I am reasearching for new ways and experiencing the visual language in the area of animation, stop-motion. Trying to find a personal path between fine art and animation.

Did you know that art beautifies, makes people more interesting and makes the brain’s neurons work in a different way?

Both production and contemplation, active observation of art, make us question, reflect and look at things differently. It therefore opens up new windows of thought and perspectives that we had not previously thought possible.
