By immersing myself in children’s stories as well as fables and legends, I created a series of drawings in which I set up female characters accompanied by animals, playing on a shift in the characteristics commonly attributed to animals.

In these drawings the wolves are not necessarily mean, nor are the little girls totally innocent.

These women, inspired by Renaissance madonnas, sculptures of Greek goddesses, or characters from art history, are accomplices of animals in unspoken stories, which each spectator can build according to his own sensitivity.

Technique: Black stone, charcoal and dry pastel on Canson paper 160 g/m2

Oak frame with extension, 4 cm deep and 2 mm plexiglass as shown in picture 2 (can be sold without frame: 850 euros)

As an artist, specifically a painter, Marta Grassi’s body of work is half way between abstraction and figurativism. By delving into her artistic world, you’ll be greeted with a dreamlike aesthetic, creating feelings of nostalgia and allowing you to reminisce about distant memories and dreams long forgotten. 

Experimentation as Her Driving Force

Marta Grassi grew up in Uruguay surrounded by painters, in a family environment where art and creativity were at the heart of just about everything.

After studying Textile Design in her home town, she moved to Paris where she attended the city’s Fine Arts studios and workshops. 

Although classically trained in figurative art, the artist does not limit herself illustrating everyday reality. In fact, Marta Grassi experiments with abstraction through colorful and atmospheric works.

The artist dabbles in both drawing and painting and experiments with acrylics, pastels, oils and pigments. She juxtaposes these mediums in order to create unique and varied effects. 

An Invitation to Dream

Marta Grassi's painting is rooted in her South American origins. In particular, she is influenced by the literary movement known as "realismo mágico“ (magic realism), which, as the name suggests, a combination of realistic fiction with magical moments weaved into it. This "magic realism" delves into the improbable, turning the universe we all know into a place full of dreamlike manifestations. 

If women are at the heart of her work, animals and nature are also just as crucial.

Her intimate works immerse us in a somewhat poetic and particularly mysterious universe. The artist wants the viewer to take ownership of the story behind her work.
