‘MAGMATISM IS A FUSION OF EXPRESSIVE AND CONCEPTUAL PROCESSES’.
Founded by Annie Zamero in 2011, the group’s name was inspired by the idea that the hot fluid within the earth’ crust – magma – is analagous to the internal heat and flow of the creative process. Also the formation of magma by the intense pressure of geological forces may be compared to the pressures and forces on each of us in our daily lives, and these shape the creative process.
The group aims to make concepts visual in a highly expressive way and the work ranges between the figurative and abstract.
The Magma Group is international and includes members who have exhibited at the Venice Biennale. Participating artists: Siro Carraro, Dagmar Dost-Nolden, Carolina Khouri, Gary Myatt, Annie Zamero.
