‘Copper Tropicana (Copper Leaf)’ showcases Marcelina Amelia’s interest in the triangular relationship between the nature world, the metropolis and human implication. The pot plant represents nature tamed and enclosed and, in the frightening hands of the human, Amelia shows us the damage that we inflict on the natural world around us. ‘Copper Tropicana (Copper Leaf)’, with its bright palette, hand laid copper leaf, and use of both figurative and abstract elements, is a powerful piece of print work.
For an insight into Marcelina Amelia's process, see our interview with her on our blog.
