Maria Bacha

Abstract Art

March 31, 2021

Greek painter Maria Bacha paints colorful, nebulous, abstract compositions inspired by nature and light. Working in an organic, gestural style, she allows the materials to guide her as the paintings develop.

She employs a unique method of blending acrylic paint, pigments and resin to create a dynamic interplay between the layers. Transparent color fields pull the eye into the illusionary space and then seem to give way to ghostly, textured forms. Like celestial clouds or pools in the primordial soup, her compositions appear to always be in the process of becoming.

Bacha has exhibited extensively in Greece, as well as in Europe and in the United States, and her work is in multiple public and private collections. She earned her Bachelor of Arts in Studio Arts from the University of La Verne, California. She lives and works in Marousi, Athens.
