Brushtouches of Mystery and Imagination

This collection will be exhibited at Sarrià Center from April 4th to April 30th, 2019. The inauguration will be on Thursday 4th at 19h.

"Brushtouches of Mystery and Imagination" is a collection of pictorial works inspired by the stories and poems of Edgar Allan Poe.
Maren has always been fascinated by the work of Poe and has wanted to pay tribute to him with this collection, giving his own interpretation of Poe's work. The mysterious aura that surrounds Poe's narrative is reflected in the brushstrokes that Maren has translated on the canvas, giving the romantic touch that inspires his work.
Poe (Boston, 1809 -Baltimore, 1849) is considered a renovator of the Gothic novel, inventor of the detective story and generally recognized as one of the universal masters of the short story.

 "For my own part, I have never had a thought which I could not interpreted with paintings with even more distinctness than that with which I conceived it. There is, however, a class of fancies of exquisite delicacy which are not thoughts, and to which as yet I have found it absolutely impossible to adapt to the canvas. These fancies arise in the soul, alas how rarely. Only at epochs of most intense tranquility, when the bodily and mental health are in perfection. And at those weird points of time, where the confines of the waking world blend with the world of dreams. And so I captured this fancy, where all that we see, or seem, is but a dream within a dream." - Edgar A. Poe, Alan Parsons.
