The Shape of Color curated by Noor Blazekovic, featuring artist Marianela Perez solo exhibition.  


Marianela Perez is a Venezuelan visual artist who has developed her practice within painting

 and photography. She grew up in Caracas, her hometown, surrounded by a colorful tropical

atmosphere, to which she owes her early inclination to vivid colors which, later would emerge in

 her inclination for arts.

 She studied Commercial Art at the Endicott College, Beverly Massachusetts, where her

enthusiasm for the visual arts was channeled through technical learning and training of her

plastic sensitivity. Upon returning to Venezuela, she studied environmental design at the

Villasmil de Leon Design institute, in Caracas, graduating as Environmental designer. Later, she

 continued her painting studies under the guidance of renown Venezuelan artists such as Corina

Briceño, Adrian Pujol and Asdrúbal Colmenares, as well as specialized painting classes and

 applied techniques to acrylic at the Boca Raton Art School (Boca Raton, Florida). Her training

 in photography comes from the Roberto Mata workshop in Caracas. (RMTF)

Her first paintings fall into the gestural trend. ln them, the color stains referred to the vegetation

 world, resembling rapprochements to flowers and leaves. Later, she ventured into digital art,

 superimposing images as collage in compositions in which the urban theme and the color


Her love for photography became a pivot throughout her work, even supporting the abstract-

 geometric expression of her current paintings. Her references come from images taken from

the daily environment, from the urban landscape, from architecture traffic and fragments from

 nature that after a process of transformation and simplification, become basic shape lines and


Her exhibition activity started in 2001 but intensified in 2009; period in which she began to show

 her work at collective exhibitions and tarried out her first solos" ln 2013, she intervened a wide

 format photography for the Caracas "Hospital Ortopedico lnfantil" (Children's Orthopedic

Hospital), and the following year intervened with her photographic work the Caracas' Altamira

Subway Station.

After establishing a residence in Miami in 2At7, the artist began a more in-depth research about

 the abstract-geometric language; which she uses as a means to perceive, think and interpret

 reality, and to give an aesthetic sense to her subjectivity and memory.


Marianela Perez has participated in collective exhibitions in Caracas, Miami, Palm Beach, Boca

 Raton, Fort Lauderdale, Saratoga, San Francisco, New York, London, Madrid and Brussels

. She has also shown her work individually in Miami and Caracas. ln 2019, she created the

 mural for the facade of the Curator's Voice Art Project space in Miami and held her solo show

 "Geometric Jump" at the Hernan Gamboa Gallery, at Humboldt international University

 (Coral Gables, Florida).
