Inspired by the literary movement called “hemofiction,” Mexican-American artist Marianela de la Hoz seeks to offer insights into the hidden character of her subjects through visual codes and exaggerated features. Her version of magic realism has been termed “white violence,” because of her use of black humor and fantasy to depict the darker side of humanity. The miniscule scale of the paintings demands close scrutiny, further emphasizing their sometimes subtle distortions and glimpses into a world of childish dreams. Like a spider draws a fly into its web, Marianela de la Hoz seeks to entrap the viewer rationally as well as viscerally.
