Marina Apollonio

Original Signed Artworks & Limited Edition Prints For Sale

Marina Apollonio is an Italian optical artist and painter who executes her work based on mathematical systems. She received her artistic education at the Venice Academy of Fine Arts, where she followed Professor Giuseppe Santomaso’s painting courses. She desired depersonalization in art, which is opposed to the idea of expressive abstraction. As a result, she started designing illusionistic visual experiences using industrial materials.
Marina adopts basic shapes, such as the circle, and then finds structural devices that bring the figures to life. The end result of her artwork is structures that seem to transform into dynamic, fluctuating spaces to a viewer’s eye.

In many of her works, she creates concentric circles with alternating color sequences, such as black and white. As the viewer’s gaze rotates around the circular planes, a robust optical effect is created. The artist has also done works based on the orthogonal interaction of parallel horizontal and vertical colored lines on black backgrounds. Her works achieve a precise communicative function, but on a strictly visual level.

Marina Apollonio is a member of the international Op Art movement. She has participated in a variety of Optical Arts events across the globe.

What is geometric abstract art?

What is geometric abstract art?

This is one of the forms of abstract art that uses geometric forms placed into a non-illusionistic space (though not always) and then combined into non representational(non objective) compositions. From the experience and results of the many years of research in the area of art, artists have suggested that the process of geometric abstraction can be a solution to the modern problems where some artists have been rejecting illusionistic practices.
