Victoria Marques Pinto

Through her mixed-media landscapes, Marques Pinto explores and emphasizes the human impact on the natural world. Creating surreal landscapes by incorporating found objects of plastic into seascapes, the addition of bright and saturated acrylic pigment into pristine untouched landscapes and marring the images of African savannas and its natural wildlife.

 

The artist’s interventions into traditional landscape compositions create strange new realities - sometimes witty and playful, but always hinting at a greater permanence and perhaps consequence - within her constructed landscapes.
