Marianela de la Hoz resume


Marianela de la Hoz basically paints using the ancient technique known as Egg Tempera, with a contemporary look into nowadays images; the works are extremely detailed, delicate and precise. She seeks to offer insights into the hidden character of her subjects through visual codes and exaggerated features. Her version of magic realism has been termed “white violence” because of her use of black humor and fantasy to depict the darker side of humanity.

Her artwork has been exhibited in prestigious galleries as well as in several museums, universities and cultural institutes in her native Mexico, in the USA, where she resides since 2001 and in Canada, Dubai, Japan and Germany.
