Marca-Relli’s early cityscapes, still lifes, circus themes and architectural motifs are reminiscent of Italian surrealist painter Giorgio de Chirico. The subdued palette and architectural starkness of these paintings create a sense of loneliness and emptiness typical of the surrealists…

"I like to travel and I like to visit places that affect me….I’ve been told that it was wrong….It’s as if you have to do it justx here and [must] shut your eyes to other things. I don’t believe in shutting my eyes to anything….Art is art anywhere."
