Interview with Márcia Vinhas Fernandes, “Alla prima”,
by Edmundo Cavalcanti
Joining or visiting some exhibitions, I always end up having a lot of pleasant surprises, discovering some unknown talents and little divulged.
I had the great pleasure and joy of knowing personally in Itapetininga, at I Mostra Itapetininga de Arte. Obs.: (We were already online friends).
Presentation Márcia Vinhas Fernandes, colorful plastic artist and writer:
Born in Niterói, lived in Resende and now lives in Santana de Paraíba, city Cradle Bandeirantes, taken by the historical heritage.
She studied at the Panamericana de Arte e Design School, made several broadsides and travel courses for studies.
Márcia: “I work with Color.
All my work is done “alla prima”, in oil paint, without drawings or touches.
– “Alla Prima” is a method of direct painting on canvas, is an Italian term used to name a technical, originally in oil, practiced in the XVII century. The result is achieved after a single application.
This method requires security, because the artist works with the speed and freedom. You must have great skill in the application of “ink” and your movements.
So that now, for this, have to have a clear idea of what will be painted and what you want to pass, as well as the colors you want to use in strokes.
– You have to work painting without hesitation, so that the first impression is not lost. She delivered the canvas and the colors.
– “Veladura” is a traditional technique, associated with oil painting. It is used to perform merges.
It comes from the Renaissance, 15th century, is applied separately, in successive thin layers and transparent paints, producing a wealth of tones and brightness.
The thin transparent layer applied on the dry paint changes its tone and used to illuminate, shading, obtaining variations of shades.
To give life to my art, merged the techniques Alla Prima, Veladura, the Impressionism and the Color.
So, I created my language through the brush strokes, joining techniques and looking for fluff colors, thus obtaining, a three-dimensional effect.
The canvas composition is at the junction of colors, through the motion with strokes, obtained with the studied techniques and Impressionism.”
My Theme: The Color.
My Technique: Alla Prima and Veladura.
My Style: Contemporary Impressionism.
My Form of Expression: Brushstrokes with Continuous Movements.
My Effect: Three-dimensional.
