Works   |   Exhibitions featuring Marta Marce
 Marta Marc√© was born in Barcelona in 1972. She attended Facultat de Belles Arts, Barcelona and the Royal College of Art, London. Recent solo exhibitions include Diadem Paintings at Riflemaker (2007) and Is this abstraction? (residency) at Camden Arts Centre (2007). Group exhibitions includes Jerwood Painting Prize 2001, Jerwood Space, London,Marta Marce: Recent Work (with Sigmar Polke), Milton Keynes Gallery (2001),New British Painting Part I, John Hansard Gallery, Southampton (2003) and she was included in John Moores 23 (2004) and John Moores 25 (2008).

I have an interest in the notion of play as a metaphor for how society operates. We live in a time where all is getting more structured, planned, and controlled. It seems a complex group of games with rules and laws that everybody needs to follow but at the same time there always are rule-breakers to the system.

I am exploring how games can function in a similar parallel way and the relation to my work. As well as in painting, games have space and time limitations, also decision-making and chance are involved. I am interested in how these diverse elements can inform my creative production of artwork.
