ABOUT ME

"most of my life has been dedicated to nature and art. i am compelled to create art that explores the sacred with a study of the compositional space, mastering art techniques, as i intuitively perceive vibratory level of energy that surrounds beings or objects. the sacred reveals to me as humans, animals and nature. my compelling reason for creating art is to transmit beauty, healing and sacredness. that at times takes the unexpected" 

Part of my practice in London UK revolves around A new aesthetic movement as a political concept to recreate a life-sensitive world: wild animals in an urban frame. WAUF, a kind of barking of animal presence in the urban world

At first it can be to give an inclusive definition of this new aesthetic movement in art. This movement is primarily based in London on work by international artists. It’s been gathering momentum for a few years. What is characteristic of this new vision of animals in urban(curator Naig Demagriden)

My latest paintings have submerged themselves into my experience of the ocean, my human perspective when it comes to our human effect on the ocean, and my love for animals. Ocean is the mother of us all, and we must open ourselves up to our planet’s oceanic water, its surfaces and its depths, to properly revere our ocean, our animal life, and our ecosystem. 

 

My work and my calling as a travelling artist has been driven my connection with animals, and this must include coming face to face with

our sometimes distant but always necessary brethren in the sea. I am still riveted by my earliest memories witnessing the hatching of turtles hatchings near the seashore—this is why I am compelled to sing through my painting a requiem for the loss of shells due to acidity and sea creatures. 

The centrality of water united us all. I share the viewpoint of other artists (notably David Hockney) that our mission is to showcase beauty through the act of looking at other life in water, and seeing other beings in the water, and in seeing ourselves in the water.

BIOGRAPHY

MOD - Marcela Olivia Dorantes an emerging artist that works between  London, UK and Washington, DC.  Dorantes  has been painting since early  childhood.  MOD's first memories of art stemmed from her grandmother an artist - theater, opera, and art.  MOD examines the interactions of wildlife, domestic animals and humans to express the experience of expansiveness, intimacy, domesticity and remoteness through her keen sense of space, shape, color and form. Birds, bears, dogs, and felines represent unfettered spiritual creatures symbolizing the transcendence of prosaic life  Prosaic life where technology has been rendered a witness of every moment of our lives.  Using the versatility of color in her art is her exclamation of gratitude to the world and synergy of life. MOD's art you linger on, art that you study, enjoy then come back for more.
