Her frequent travels to Japan introduced her to Mono No aware, an aesthetic concept derived from Japanese Buddhist philosophy that deals with the elusive nature of the sensible world, the description and resigned contemplation of what is lost. A disturbing metaphorical strangeness emerges from Marcella Barceló’s canvases, crossed by the recurring figures of ghostly adolescents, hesitating between wonder and anguish.


"I try to represent anxious memories, to represent that moment when we realize the impermanence of everything. I represent landscapes where there seems to be a potential threat, a slight trembling, a few seconds before being chased out of paradise," says the artist.
