MARA MINUZZO - FIGURATIVE
Visual artist Mara Minuzzo specializes in the mediums of both acrylic painting and large scale pencil drawing to create works of captivating contemporary realism. Primarily self-taught, her diverse influences include the natural world, people, illustration and architecture. With an overall theme of illusion and the objective to engage the viewer and draw them into her work she seeks to create the perception of depth with 3D-like imagery. Often employing a contrast of intricately detailed realism with areas of simplified illustrative forms she is able to further heighten the illusory effect she strives to achieve in her work.
