"Combining my love for interior design with my love of nature, this piece showcases the beautiful natural colour of the chameleon in a space that shares the same colours. The painting includes real plants that share and complement the main colour of the painting, to further showcase the amazing colours that nature has to offer. The green lacquer frame is an integral part of the artwork, as it finishes off the piece with an ornate border as an additional element to the mainly-monochromatic colour palette and unique interior design.

I have always loved exploring colour through my artwork, and this year I have started a new exploration of monochromatic paintings which has allowed me to dive even deeper into understanding and appreciating individual colours. Colour has always sparked joy for me so I like to use bright and bold colours in my art in order to do the same for the viewer. The Colourful Rooms series uses a minimal and mainly monochromatic colour palette to highlight the natural colours of the animals that are in them. Having worked in the design industry for a few years, this series acts as a colour study which combines my interests in interior design as well as my love of nature and colour. Each room contains real species or animal and plants and their true colours, with a few complimentary colour accents to further emphasize the main colour of each painting. A recurring theme in my work is a combination of animals and nature with cities or man-made settings to bridge the gap between humans and the natural world. Nature is so beautiful and spending time in it is proven to improve our mood, so this series aims to get the viewer to better appreciate the amazing beauty of nature, in a fun way."
-Marica


Marica Villeneuve is a Toronto-based artist with a BFA in drawing and painting and her practice mainly consists of detailed works depicting her dreams and images from her imagination. Her work often juxtaposes nature with man-made spaces and objects, reflecting a deep desire to be closer to nature, as well as an admiration for what humans have created. In a society where people often feel separate from nature, she believes that recognizing that we are a part of it will allow us to better appreciate and live in harmony with the environment, and hopes that her artwork will inspire this view. The most common subjects in her art are related to the ocean, due to its endlessly inspiring beauty and mystery. By combining realism and surrealism, she hopes to bring the broader dream of environmental harmony closer to reality, in the same way that she brings her own dreams into reality through her paintings, and invites the viewer to look at each artwork like a window into a wondrous world.
