Mariana Peirano was an art major in High school, but she entered her art career much later in life. Life happened, she started a family and unconsciously moved away from being an artist and embarked in an education career that lasted more than 20 years. During those years, her art was limited to creating classroom materials for my students and my own children. In 2009 she realized she needed to get back to her true nature and be an artist again. This time she was sure she needed to move in the figurative direction. Mariana took a year off from work and enrolled in the Los Angeles Academy of Figurative Art, and she is a full time artist.
“My process reflects my belief that I’m merely an instrument for the creative forces of the universe. I’d like to believe that the universe had a plan for me to be an artist from the moment I was born. According to my mother, I was drawing since I could hold a pencil. I'm inspired by images that evoke a strong emotional response in me. And so sometimes I write poems to decipher the messages I receive from those images. Then the words and the images become my painting. My concern for the human condition, which has permeated my life, is reflected in my artwork. The grace and beauty of the human body and the perplexity of facial expressions are all recurring themes in my work. I like to create images that evoke emotion and portray the complexity of the human mind. “
“I consider my work contemporary realism, however my recent work has a touch of the mystical and spiritual reflecting my own growth and awareness. Through my art I like to reveal the dramatic experience of self-discovery and the monumental transformations that occur in our human life. I hope to provoke thought and introspection in the viewer.”

The Art Storefronts Organization has verified that this Art Seller has published information about the archival materials used to create their products in an effort to provide transparency to buyers.
Archival Quality paint must have certain qualities. The first is the paper itself. The paper or canvas must be manufactured using pure alpha cellulose fibre, pure cotton fibre or a combination of the two materials. This will ensure the paper base is pH7 or above or acid free. A paper that contains lignin cannot be acid free as lignin is a naturally occurring acid within plant fibres. It is the lignin content in newsprint paper which causes it to yellow and go brittle over time. Next the paper is coated for preparation of printing. This preparation changes depending on the machine and paper used. The coating is applied to the surface of the paper base to ensure that the ink is absorbed in just the right amount. Once a coating is applied, the pH value (acidity) of the entire paper changes. The only way for this to be addressed is for manufacturers to ensure that the coatings used on their papers are as close to acid neutral as possible and to supply the pH value of the total paper (base and coating) rather than just the base. Then the ink is applied to the Archival paper. In order for a print to be considered An Archival print the inks used are pigment-based instead of dye-based. Finally; to maintain your Archival Print, below is a checklist.: 1. Ensure all the materials used to mount, frame and store finished prints are acid free. 2. Display your own prints out of direct light, in an environment with stable temperature, and humidity levels.
