At Marina Cleiren you encounter photo-realistic portraits and cleverly combined with abstract shapes.
The ethics behind her work has always been the beauty and sensibility of the woman. This creates contemporary, imaginative, sensual and penetrating conceptual portraits and figures. They have a magical and sometimes surreal look. The composition instinctively attracts the viewer and leads them into a kind of fantasy world.
In themselves, these female figures represent different facets of the female character. Marina isn’t just trying to capture every woman’s initial aestheticism. No, she has chosen a much more difficult goal: she is looking for spirituality in a portrait. The essence of being human.
The eyes play an important role in this, which lead the viewer to look further into the soul of the person portrayed and to touch the magical world and thus enchant the viewer with beauty and psyche.
