Marina Zlochin prints her illustrations onto metal cuts using a lively broad-ranging color palette intricately decorated with spirals and unique designs.
her chosen subject matter is rich and varied.
including everyday scenarios in the lives of women-cafe mettings and the shopping culture.
her Wishing Tree incorporates elements from judaism.
to which she imparts a new fresh look while still acknowledging their original function.
for example a HAMSA or a series of Hannukiot whose base is formed by palm tree branches.
a small girl may swinging from them or a mother hanging out laundry on them.
while a littel boy flies a kite birds build nests and a beautiful hoopoe alights above.
Marina's works deliver a strong and naive and sometimes groteque artistic tecniques.
they are highly professional bright and extravagant and are filled with vitality and a possitive outlook.
