MAGMA is the #1 piece of the eponymous collection MAGMA.
MAGMA collection focuses on the boiling, only apparently sleeping fire within every woman; I started this collection with the eponymous piece,reflecting on my perception of femininity.While developing this collection I came to understand that it is not necessary to understand: there is a spiritual creature inside every woman that is hard to rationalize or tame.Every woman reaches an awakening to her Spirit, that has nothing to do with what society expects from here.MAGMA is a visual rendering of the integration of opposites, as the boiling matter beneath a volcano, women have the same capacity to generate from nothingness,to resurrect themselves.
This piece in particular, which measures 9 x 12 inches, oil painting on wood panel, explores the tension between vulnerability and strength, between surrender and firey battle. It depicts a woman abandoned on a chair in an unatural position.
RED is the dominant color of the collection, which counts 8 pieces and is viewable on https://www.saatchiart.com/elisarossi.
