121 by 152 cm

Acrylic on Canvas

Painted November 2020



From the beginning of time Mother Earth has been in a constant state of flux.  A continuing dance of destruction through the forces of the universe, the changing of the seasons and its own natural disasters.

My painting is titled “Volcano”. It is as if the earth erupts its inner anger in a visual display of force and power.  A seemingly volatile act but in turn resulting in the production of ash to nurture its soil, release its life-giving water from its mantle and create geothermal energy. Destruction and renewal.

In this piece I hope to capture the pernicious beauty of this convergence through movement and the use of bold hues and a dripping canopy of color to produce a freeing, textured movement.


Artist: Maria De Zorzi


    Maria De Zorzi


    My name is Maria De Zorzi.  I was born in Italy and immigrated to Canada at a young age. I live in Vaughan, Ontario.

    I am a self-taught artist and have enjoyed painting all my life.  In the past year I have started to paint on a regular basis and now operate a small art studio in The Junction area in the City of Toronto.

    I have worked with different mediums but have a preference to acrylics because I think they best suit my style.  I like to paint pieces that are expressive and meditative.  My style ranges from impressionism to modern abstract.  In my abstracts, I often use strong, vibrant colors and what I refer to as sweeping strokes and anchoring swirls.  I do not paint from a reference or a specific scenery.  The world around me evokes an idea or emotion and I transfer that onto the canvas.

    I dream in colors and I paint my dreams.
