Artist Statement

Marcy workingArtist Maricela Sanchez creates brilliant colored, densely layered abstract work that speaks of the complex relationship of nature & culture.



I want you to see nature as I see it, and bring imagination to your world. I enjoy working with mixed mediums, turning simplicity into complexity. By using news articles, landscape images and a multitude of forms and objects, my work becomes unrecognizable and contemporary culture’s complicated web of information is transformed.


My joyful and playful organic shapes are intuitively formed. The colors and patterns resemble the coastal living environment, with embedded keepsakes adding dialog on today’s icons and culture.


While none of these retain their original identities, they act as a densely intricate tribute to life’s depth of meaning.  Creating in this way, I’m able to work in a continual evolution in which possibilities are endless.
