How To Live

Marcelina Amelia is an exciting contemporary artist known for her works that contemplate themes of self-acceptance, gender and representations of female sexuality.

Amelia’s dark-yet-humorous art is rich in juxtapositions. She states: ‘I like to play at the tense borders between lust and innocence, joy and sadness, fun and pain.’

In How To Live, Amelia turns her eye to the self-help world. Her subject sits, lost in thought, with a daunting pile of reading to get through. The piece invites the observer to consider whether reading instructions about how to live is really a viable replacement for just doing so.

Each giclée print is hand-coloured, and therefore unique. This piece is from a limited edition of 60, signed and numbered by the artist.

    Shadow float mounting is an option at our website, to give the appearance of an artwork floating within the frame. The mount – an archival foam core – creates depth too, by casting a shadow beneath the artwork. We highly recommend using a float mount when framing artwork with deckled (hand-torn) edges.

    About the artist
    +

    Contemporary artist Marcelina Amelia draws inspiration from her Polish heritage, looking to traditions of folklore and religious iconography to develop a distinctive contemporary aesthetic. Blending childhood nostalgia with the power of dream, Amelia’s work takes a surreal look at the human condition, exploring the tensions and juxtapositions that define our lives. She explains: “I like to play at the tense borders between lust and innocence; joy and sadness; fun and pain. My interest in juxtaposition comes from my origins and fascination with East European culture.” 

    In 2018, Rebecca Wilson, chief curator at Saatchi Art, highlighted Amelia as an artist to invest in, while Saatchi curator Monty Preston recognised her as “unquestionably an artist on the rise.” 

    She has been featured in publications including Booooooom, Digital Arts, Art Wednesday, Vogue and Ballad Of Magazine. She exhibited at D&AD, New Designers, London Design Festival, London Illustration Fair, and took part in Faberge’s Big Egg Hunt.
