About the featured artist:

Marcella Colavecchio is an Italian-American contemporary visual artist best known for her representational paintings and drawings. Pulling inspiration from her own life experiences, as well as those of the people she depicts, Colavecchio’s work is defined by it’s bold narratives, often grounded in themes of sexuality and identity. Her aesthetic favors unnatural and exaggerated light sources, leaning into artificiality to create synthetic worlds, using lighting as a means of expression. While her paintings are momentous in movement and saturated with color, they are still silent, and create a voluble visual narrative on the relationship between people and their bodies.

Colavecchio studied classical drawing at Lyme Academy of Fine Art under the master draftsman, Deane G. Keller. Her work has been shown nationally with notable exhibitions most recently at Commerce Gallery in Lockhart, TX. She was a finalist for Jonathan Ferrara Gallery’s No Dead Artists exhibition in New Orleans, LA. Her work has also been featured in notable publications such as, Sight Lines Magazine, Almost Real Things Magazine, The Austin Chronicle, The Austin American Statesman, and Split Lip Magazine.
