Mara De Luca’s newest series of paintings called Elegies address the mystical poetry found in Rainer Maria Rilke’s great collection, “Duino Elegies.” Rilke’s romantic poems deal with the existential dilemma of man in a world filled with beauty and despair. De Luca’s series is systematic and includes ten painted elegies, the same number as Rilke’s poems. Other inspirations for De Luca’s dramatic shifts of light and the moodiness of the color scheme came from the high fashion print advertisements of Gucci and Dior. Her references to art history include Romantic painterly gestures, obvious nods to the California Light and Space movement and the idea of the ready-made.

 

“My imagery shifts between extremes of representation and abstraction: from landscaped fields composed of heightened contrasts to subtle and monochromatic light plays, translating the effects and varying tone of Rilke’s existential poems while gesturing towards the natural landscape of Los Angeles.” – Mara De Luca
