Lúdica artista cancunense quien ha exhibido su trabajo en México, Canadá, España, Cuba, Alemania, Francia, EUA, Belice y Brasil. Veracruzana de nacimiento, estudió Diseño Gráfico en Monterrey. NL. Marisol recupera las milenarias expresiones de alegría y el gusto por la existencia que son propias de la Cultura Totonaca y del talante de los veracruzanos.

 

Para construir su obra, parte de su realidad, de sus recuerdos infantiles cuando se asomaba al microscopio del padre médico y se sorprendía de esos mundos tan ricos en formas y con una intención produce en el plano actual una tercer realidad: sus personajes mágicos, quienes se transforman, diciéndonos que existen los disfraces en un mundo donde la vida social sufre un cambio constante, evoluciona, involuciona, crece y decrece. Finalmente todos nos disfrazamos diría la pintora.

Las sirenas y los animales son una temática recurrente en su obra ubicándolos en un espacio sin fronteras, los dota de valores y conceptos vitales como la dualidad y retrata al instante que define al amor.  El discurso pictórico se expande o contrae de acuerdo a los objetivos a plasmar de la autora, a través de la vista –esa cualidad mágica de la carne- no es sólo para acceder a actitudes inocentes o perversas en la obra sino también para mostrar un conocimiento y amor por la vida. Ella es objeto de un intenso diálogo interno que nutre de contenidos iconográficos sus lienzos, de campos de color muy definidos demuestra una pasión por la línea pero no la recta, la ondulada.

Marisol D’Estrabeau is a Mexican Visual Artist born in 1982. From 2001 to 2005 she studied Graphic Design, where her talent started to flourish by many signals: (Spiritual, Professional and Human) From 2006, she started to create and show her work internationally in places like Canada, Spain, Mexico, France, USA, Cuba, Belize, Germany and Brasil. 

Marisol has been able to create her own language based on a set of plastic and aesthetic values. Her work has become very prolific, and ever since 2007 her style has developed to afford a very identifiable from of expression. Marisol believes that the movement of life becomes apparent through our thoughts and dreams. In this case, the movement responds to the immediate act of being; it is the essence that allows life and the ephemeral reality to exist, and during this process it motivates us to change, to overcome, and to harmonize. She has no formal rules in her composition, and that is why her style seems so spontaneous and creative.

To create her work, she touches base with her reality, with her childhood memories when she used to peer through her father’s microscope and would be surprised to find worlds so rich in shapes. With full intention, she creates a third reality within the current realm: her magical characters are transformed, and tell us that there are disguises in a world where social life suffers constant change; it evolves, it regresses, it increases and decreases. “At the end of the day, we all wear disguises,” says the artist. She is subjected to an intense internal dialogue that nurtures the iconographic content of her paintings, well-defined fields of color that show a passion for lines--but not the straight ones--the wavy lines.

Her shapes may cause surprise due to their bizarre forms, but they are shapes of such prodigality that they transport the beholder towards an optimistic feeling that reminds us of her peculiar feminine sense found in the profusion of the forms. Currently, she lives in Cancun where she keeps developing her colorful and original work inspired in the God’s Spirit, Love, Nature and Dreams.
