Marco Mazzoni

I could have sworn I’d posted about Marco Mazzoni before, but I was thinking of Meghan Howland (another artist fond of painting faces obscured by flowers and birds!).

Oh, he had me at the Tarsier…

…and entwined bundles of wildlife.

I wish there were an artist statement so I could get his take on the subject matter. I’ve had clear images of flowers sprouting from (and/or) covering human faces in meditation exercises, but I imagine Mazzoni’s images have personal meaning unique to him.

Most pieces are done in colored pencil, which allows for a gorgeous softness and makes the vivid colors pop (and sometimes allows eyes and faces to glow by contrast in that I can only call “exorcismal” intensity).

    Beautiful. To some these floral face meditations would be nightmares, Dana, but in your world I like to think they are glorious.

      It’s a recurring image in my meditation. Flowers and plants spontaneously sprout from all manner of things. It speaks to me of growth and harmony with the universe. I LOVE it.
