Item Overview


Untitled (Self Portrait), 2004, chromogenic print, ed. 25, signed in margin recto, 16"x20" (406 x 508 mm)

Artist or Maker


Marina Karella (born July 19, 1940) is a Greek artist. She is married to Prince Michael of Greece and Denmark. Karella's paintings are inspired by the implied complexities of popular and historic garden representations (i.e. Garden of Eden, Picnic at Hanging Rock). They incorporate traditional garden emblems and architecture such as statues and fountains to create a mythology that reveals subconcious meaning. The paintings move from the references and direct evocations of garden landscape to a mysterious nether land in which images and references appear and disappear in a dreamlike atmosphere. Ms. Karella has exhibited extensively in Europe and the U.S. and is included in the permanent collections of the Pompidou Center, the Vorres Museum of Modern Art in Athens, the Menil Collection and the Baron Thyssen Bornemisza Collection. She has also done costume and theater design for the National Theater of Greece, the Theater of Zurich, and the National Theater of Piraeus.
