Mara Fine Art
Sfara is a contemporary representational sculptor and painter. Her vividly colored paintings often depict idyllic, serene landscapes
featuring natural elements such as trees, lakes, cliffs and the sea. A talented
portraitist adept at capturing scenes from her travels—often seascapes. One can
readily identify with Mara’s original and whimsical bronze sculptures, since
her subjects each convey a different emotion, mood or attitude. This is the
essence of Mara Sfara’s work: to draw viewers in, to evoke emotion and tell a
story - one that is positive and uplifting. “I am a very positive person, and I
enjoy beautiful colors, objects and places,” explains Mara. This attitude
reflects itself in her art.
artwork is deeply influenced by her mentor, the seminal portrait artist Burton
Silverman, whom she calls a “psychological artist”. Mara reaches the core of the
emotion she is looking to convey, so that her pieces possess deep meaning.
Likening her artistic process to that of a writer, she says: “In
literature, using fewer words to express ideas shows a greater command of
language. The same is true with art. The true artist uses subliminal seduction
within the painting to convey a story.” Therefore, all of Mara’s pieces have a
true focus and all the elements work together to create a magical experience.
