Marina Karella sees her work closely with the ancient world memory and its philosophical thought. Her formation alongside Tsaroukis and Kokoschka enabled her to develop an artistic sensibility that restores us the ancient dream and its nostalgia, thanks to pictorial treatment and exceptional technique which serve her vision. These subjects belong to Mediterranean culture - sometimes eastern culture- depicting mythical worlds mingled with Marina Karella's intimate memory.
