A leafy houseplant sits atop a gold tablecloth in Marisa Anon's contemporary take on the centuries old still-life tradition. 

At the forefront of Marisa's work is her interest in colour, environment and personal narratives. She explains that:

"The colours of the Mediterranean coast where I live are part of my identity but they are also the inspiration for my palette. I like to bring that outdoor light inside my studio, to experiment with the colours and shapes, the shadows and the light."

As a conservator of artworks, Marisa has worked professionally with all types of artworks from Gothic retables to large master paintings. Her extensive and intimate experience working with classical paintings has a huge impact on her own painting, she highlights the 'sense of pictorial lushness and harmony of colour.
