As from today you will find new images of paintings from 'Virtual worlds a diary' in My Art Worlds. All the paintings shown are made in 2015.
A life-long project I 'm working on, are my 'memories'. Life is so short and I want to save who I am and how I felt in a constantly moving work of art. Naturally creating brings a great pleasure to me. Sometimes I feel like a magician. Every page is like a wave of the sea, a living organism from which we can see the respiration, the flux every moment on the beach.

As from today you will find new images of paintings from 'POETRY of the WOODS' in My Art Worlds. All the paintings shown are made in 2014 and 2015.
In the summer of 2014, I decided to dedicate a series of my work to the poetry of the forest. Because a lake surrounded by a forest is in my area where I walk with my husband every day, (traveling abroad has become impossible for me at the moment) , so I decided to turn my attention to this very close biotope : woods full of mystery , with wonderful backlight and … silence. Certainly a contemporary theme with our increasingly disappearing nature.

After the loss : My painting of the month July 2015.
This is a painting showing a woman in enormous sorrow covered with the blood of her family she just lost because of war. She is a metaphor for the grief on earth. There is no improvement since yesterday.

As from today you will find new images of paintings from 'Filled emptiness unique worlds' in My Art Worlds. All the paintings shown are made in 2013. Most of the paintings were made in Tunesia.
When you sit gazing into the distance, vacantly, contemplatively, lost within the environment, you come to realize how the landscape assumes the shape of a living presence, how its colours unfold in delicate and refined nuances, how the sun lights the surface of the waters in rose and golden hues, and fleeting emerald brightnesses reflect their sparkles in the bursting ripples.

Chased : My painting of the month June 2015.
This painting shows us the lamentable situation of Syrian refugees : women trying to save their child, their future. What can they do else? It is an heroique act , executed always again by women in history.

As from today you will find images of paintings from 'Works with a story' in My Art Worlds. All the paintings shown are made in 2010 and 2011.
With "Work with a story" I go regularly; perhaps related to contemporary events, submit a work from my collection, where I put the link to today's events.

More information about Marlene Dumas on ARTSY .
Seeing M. Dumas’ impressive art at her exhibition in the Stedeliijk Museum of Amsterdam, (and more reading about her art), for me related to the French expressionist Rouault both in the way of painting sometimes and of content.
Being a South-African, in her childhood she was certainly confronted with a world of ‘apartheid’ with brutality, racism, injustice , exploitation, where black people were not seen as equal human beings, a defenseless feeling must have gone through the unconscious and given birth to the sublime later. In her art we see the beauty of the ugly, the overwhelming.
