Straw From The Shoes Protrudes

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

Straw From the Shoes Protrudes is an old Polish proverb, which means that you can always tell when a person comes from the countryside, and therefore has little refinement.

The artwork, which is inspired by the artist’s personal experience of migration, flips the judgmental saying into a statement of empowerment, and reminds the observer that; ‘In this uncertain world, driven by prejudice, sexism and racism, it is crucial to celebrate our differences.’

This giclée print is hand-finished, and therefore unique. It is from a limited edition of 80, 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.

    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.
