"Magmatism is a fusion of the expressive and conceptual processes"
Founded by Annie Zamero in 2011, the group's name was inspired by the idea that the hot fluid within the earth's crust - magma - is analogous to the internal heat and flow of the creative process. Also the formation of magma by the intense pressure of geological forces may be compared to the pressures and forces exerted on each of us in our daily lives. These pressures shape the creative process.
The aims of the group are to provide an alternative gauge for contemporary expressive art and a showcase and international network for artists whose work fuses expressive and conceptual qualities.
As Annie Zamero says, "We embrace concepts in our work but don't leave solely them in the realm of the intellect. We want to make concepts visual in a highly expressive way."
The group's work ranges between the figurative and abstract; it is international and includes members who have shown at the Venice Biennale. Countries represented are:- France, Germany, Cyprus, Spain, UK and USA.
