Corpus Nudus

B35A1876 new canvas

Corpus Nudus is an exhibition of paintings by Singapore based, Mexican artist Mireya Marsan, where the viewer can enjoy the beauty of the human body in all its glory.

The artist’s artworks show the beauty and soul of the human body with its unique ability to communicate an infinite variety of emotions, ideas, concepts, and stories. Mireya’s work invites the viewer to share an inner world as she explores her identity through the roles of artist and mother. In this exhibition, she approaches the nude form in a classical style. She says: “Nude art has been around for centuries and yet it continues to elicit a varied range of reactions from wonder to indignation.”

Mireya Marsan has since lived in Singapore for nearly 10 years and believes that South East Asia has heavily influenced her paintings. She has dedicated herself full time to painting for 13 years. Mireya has studied at the Grand Central Academy of Art in New York, as well as at the Art Academy of Florence, where she focused on learning the techniques of the Old Masters.

Artist Statement:

The reason I paint is really just to paint. I love the process of painting.

In the process of painting, I get to make something and then maybe if I am very lucky I get to spend time suspended in the moment. As I work I look forward to the opportunity to step in and out of the moment to gently move the process along. For me painting is a process of practices and routines that allow wonderful accidents to happen- all the parts contribute to the end result.

Exhibition dates: Wed, 14 September – Tues, 20 September 2016 (11am – 6pm daily) Free Admission

Venue: Visual Arts Centre

Mireya Marsan is a Mexican painter.  While she has been painting for 18 years, it is only in the last 13 years that she has dedicated herself full time to the pursuit of this art.  Mireya has studied at the Grand Central Academy of Art in New York, as well as at the Art Academy of Florence, where she focused on learning the techniques of the Old Masters.

Mireya has since lived in Singapore for nearly 10 years and believes that South East Asia has heavily influenced her paintings. Her first exhibit in Singapore “Colours of Asia” reflects such influence.

In her upcoming exhibit, Mireya has shifted her focus to the nude human body and she is especially proud of her latest pieces, in which she approaches form from a classical style.  Nude art has been around for centuries and yet it continues to elicit a varied range of reactions from wonder to indignation.

In the coming years, Mireya hopes to developed new collections that can reach global audiences in worldwide locations.
