Through the collection entitled “Out of the deepest inertia a birth”, the artist Marion Pascali constructs a contemporary myth of creation whereby Thanatos transubstantiates in a life-inspiring demon and generative source of beauty and Clotho, anything but fate, spins with her spindle threads of life that follow unforeseeable trajectories. Accomplice in this path that relentlessly tortures her but uncompromisingly feeds her is the desire for both the finding of an authentic expression and the necessary elicitation of the art-crafter woman. The artist composes her images by unravelling threads that in their unanticipated meshes embrace the birth of enigmatic shapes and forms. Reinforced by a colour palette in pencil and lavish oil paints, these forms are unleashed in an abstractly lyrical space of a piercing white and frugal bas relief. The titles of the works themselves develop in quatrains that amplify the reading of the image. Within this overtly poetic mood, the artist-Clotho gives birth and spins her thoughts concerning love, passion, pain and loss.
Marion Pascali was born in England by Cypriot parents.
During her studies in the science sector of the Pancyprian Gymnasium in Nicosia, the artist received drawing and painting lessons from the well-known Cypriot artist Andreas Charalambous. Subsequently, she studied Painting at the Academy of Fine Arts in Florence under the supervision of the professors and artists F.Farulli and G.Ulivi. In the course of her studies, she was inspired by “Performance Art” which led her not only to the creation of a book ‘object d’art’ and the intention of its audio-visual expression, but also to further studies in the field of theatre. She received an MA award from Kings College and Rada in London in “Text and Performance”.
The last thirteen years she works as an art teacher at the Junior and Senior School in Nicosia, whilst concurrently continuing her creative path in the field of the arts. She has in her record two solo exhibitions and has participated in two group exhibitions.
