Meet the artist
Mazarine intelligently plays on a psychological phenomenon known as Pareidolia (parr-i-DOH-lee-a) – a condition which makes people see familiar shapes and patterns where none exist. Mazarine, however intentionally hides clues in her work. Once you’ve found the clue you can decipher the work or the subject reveals itself. When that happens, it is an aha moment.
No wonder critics have tagged her style as “Mysteries in Colour.”

“The principle of true art is not to portray, but to evoke”
I am currently in discussion with Mazarine with regards to commissioning a piece for my daughter based on her latin ballroom dancing, it will be something she can treasure for a lifetime.Angela
We were first drawn to this piece for the statement that it makes, and how the composition so beautifully captures a woman in thought. The more we looked at it, the more we loved the beautifully depicted figure, hidden among swashes of color. We also find her pose so interesting, where it portrays simultaneously somebody who is serene, and somebody who is sorrowful. We have received countless compliments on this piece, and we fall in love with it more and more every day.
My latest collection, ‘BARAZ’ is a unique experiment, which aesthetically and eternally unites an authentic antique chair with the original work of a contemporary artist starting a new “happily ever after” story. Unlike art that hangs on the wall or sits on a shelf, a ‘Baraz’ chair is an art installation that stands on its own four legs in any setting. It is designed to start conversations and is destined to become an heirloom bequeathed from one generation to the next to enjoy and to collect.
When I start a painting I always ask myself what I would hang on my wall, true aesthetic preference is what appeals to me the most.Visuals are a powerful thing. I have been asked what inspires me and my answer is “everything!” From the wine, I order the cheese I pick, to the lighting in my favorite restaurant to the pattern on a paper napkin. I keep my eyes open, to color, to smell to the touch and it all comes up when I start a collection.

The transition from portraits to identifying any single form from an abstract colour palette was indeed a challenge. But as Aristotle said, the aim is not about the outward appearance but their inward significance. Colours create their own forms if you allow them to,...
