Saatchi New This Week collection includes painting by Marie Kazalia titled Joggle 3

Ploce Series

The title of this new painting on paper is ploce  (pronounced  PLOH-see)–the word means the repetition of a word or phrase to gain special emphasis or to indicate an extension of meaning, as in Ex. 3:14: “I am that I am.”

This painting started as a sketched idea in color in one of my sketchbooks. I’ve since painted two versions of it, but am only posting one here.

I gave this the title REN, a written character in Mandarin Chinese, which it reminded me of  a little. The Chinese character is much different.

Resistance, artist: Marie Kazalia, email the artist:

The title, Resistance, refers to the painting techniques used–which are the Process Painting techniques of layers, stain and poured paint. The silver acrylic paint layer (over yellow and texture on canvas) acts as a resist to the watery splashed on dark paint stain, so that it does not soak into the canvas as in traditional Stain Painting.  The stain layer of watery paint bleeds out to break from the confines of the hardedge forms based on military camouflage patterns. The artist mixes much of her own paint using painting mediums and dry pigments. In this case, the artist mixed silver aluminum powder into an artist grade acrylic medium as the pigment binder, to create the silver paint used in this painting.
