Miss You (2014-18)
Manual and digital collage
Graduated in Graphic Design and work as a designer and illustrator using collage as a tool.
Develop a mixed collage - manual and digital at the same time.
Often uses phrases as starting points for creations, made first in notebooks and then
Produces a substantial authorial work.
Understand that collage as a meeting between pictures - cut and paste - the scissors
separates and the glue joins. We are made up of clippings.
" (...) There is a sense of uprightness in the way Marcia builds her collages,
overlaps like a building forming a single, centralized a board. The work happens
as a transfiguration where one image meets the other, in a relationship of "lock"
and key (...). " (part of the text by Fernando Fuão, for presentation of Marcia Albuquerque
exhibition in 2015 - RJ).
"Miss You" is about love that remains intact.
Immaculate and idealized love (note the Vatican postmark in the center of the image).
Love that resists the movement of time.
Childlike love that smells and tastes. You can almost pick it up, but it's smoke that dissolves over us.
