Details

A mermaid reaches out in dark waters to caress luminous jellyfish drifting in the night. Stars are reflected in the sea and her graceful tail is tucked inside a nautilus shell. Working in black and white, Marina Pallares creates a linoleum block print of dazzling detail. "In general, my work is inspired by magic realism. The mermaid emerges from a seashell, a unique and enigmatic creature. The jellyfish are equally enigmatic, silent, always in motion. She feels love for them as she reaches out... but will she be able to touch them? Will they sting her? Will they be compatible? Somehow, the mermaid represents all of us when falling in love, when anything is possible. She also symbolizes my own love for the sea," the Mexican artist confides.

Titled "La sirena que se enamoró de las medusas" in Spanish.

"A sailor who fell in love with a mermaid"

I collect mermaids of all sorts... this image will have an honored place among them. This is one of a very few mermaids shown enjoying their private underwater environment unabashedly.

"Beautiful"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I loved this the second I saw it, and had just gotten a new job and apartment, so I splurged. The quality is fantastic, and seeing it on my wall makes me smile every day. Ive since also purchased the Jaguar print from Ms. Pallares, and hope to add another print in the future -- shes just an overall wonderful artist.

I bought this as a rememberance for some friends who lost their dog. The joy in the Perrito just reflected the joy that their dog always brought me. Just lovely.

"Love Marina Pallaress work & this is no exception"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I have two other prints by Marina Pallares, and I love them both. This small linoleum block print is no exception. It looks even better in person, with a remarkable level of detail, and I cant wait to get it framed.
