‘Copper Tropicana’ is a limited edition Silkscreen Print by contemporary artist Marcelina Amelia. Printed onto 310gsm Southbank Smooth paper, the piece is signed and numbered by the artist.
Marcelina Amelia is a contemporary artist, working with mixed media approaches to print, painting and drawing. Taking inspiration from religious iconography, folk tales, dreams, sexuality, and the human condition, her work plays at the borders between lust and innocence, creating a beautiful and uneasy aesthetic that is saturated with contemplation and profundity.
‘Copper Tropicana’ showcases Amelia’s interest in the triangular relationship between the nature world, the metropolis and human implication. The pot plant represents nature tamed and enclosed and, in the frightening hands of the human, Amelia shows us the damage that we inflict on the natural world around us. ‘Copper Tropicana’, with its bright palette, and use of both figurative and abstract elements, is a powerful piece of print work.
