ARTIST STATEMENT

Nora de Mariaffi works mostly in acrylic and mixed media to create large 2D works and deals with a large range of feminist and environmental themes. She is currently interested in exploring the indulgent acts of herself and the protagonists in her pieces. Nora de Mariaffi has spent a lot of the time in the past year looking at identity and self-portraits. Exploring the representation of women in art through her portraits, she lends humour to the world and lives of the characters she depicts. Whether those painted are art students with too many bags on the metro, half-human half-swans with messy apartments, or Transylvania Countesses; de Mariaffi finds a bit of herself in them all.
