Marcia Mar at Nolia’s Gallery

Acrylic, oil, brush, ink, music and a novel. All together. That is what you will find at the Care Revolution exhibition at Nolia's Gallery by the artist, writer and musician Marcia Mar.

With an interesting mix between all tools available to express herself, Marcia uses the experience as a National Health community development worker serving refugees, asylum seekers and Black minority ethnic communities in London to present in diverse mediums all the love she have felt and experienced.

The exhibition is the best of the last 10 years of the artist's work and itís difficult to point what came first.

"Everything is connected: the music, the paint and the romance. And I donít know where the beginning is. My primary interest is the ever present human reality of the Balance of care of the self and care of the others," says Marcia.

Marcia Mar's work is based on the observation of people; the values of tolerance and diversity; but also the sensory and the spiritual: synaesthesia; syncretistic religion; mystery.

The free exhibition at Nolia's Gallery is open afternoons until Saturday 13 August when Marcia celebrates her birthday.
