To love the human being is a essential condition for the artistic practice. In this way, the pictoric production of Márcia Pinho presents a poetry marked by a sensibility in the treatment of the human figure and the city, themes that seems more close to her. The first one motivates a reflection about what is beautiful, and the second one considers the most diverse environments as places of the existential life expression. Borned in Brazil, São Paulo city, at March 14, 1976, Márcia dived in the world of art when she moved to São Bernardo City. Stimulated by her brother, who gave her a small screen and acrylic inks, she started to create, paiting at least three or four pictures per day. The next step was to visit museums, for a close observation of the great masters, and navigate in the internet searching for several kinds of information. The constant research continued in the painting courses with the artist Eliane Ducatti and at Escola de Arte de São Paulo, where she found the professor Eden Della Bella Jr. Thus, the painting of Márcia Pinho gained a peculiar aspect by the search of the aesthetic solutions that illustrates the relationship of the artist with the world. The plastic result have strong expressionist characteristics, either for the use of the color, or by the form. The freedom of the trace at the body making moment, indicates a permanent search for aesthetical ways of accented freedom and a conscious effort to break the rules. The figurative trend, present in most of her works, discloses that the body is seen as an instrument for the practice of the pictorial making. The boldness in the colors and forms reveals a desire to surpass the established frontiers in search of challenging personal paradigms. Dark tonalities and pure colors directly ou of the ink pipe are a predominance. The very peculiar use of the spatula becomes the element differentiator, because it offers the possibility to work the ink with a very special relief, that favors the use of the most varied forms. Besides working with ink oil, Márcia Pinho performs experiences with the use of rags, embroidering the screen, in an experimental path that confirms the uneasiness that is observed in the greater part of her work. Perhaps this feeling of nonconformity can become more evident in the sets of houses that allow to a bigger experimentation of forms and colors. In her universe of people and images, Márcia Pinho constructs a inventiveworld marked by the search of relationships between the human being and its surroundings. She doesn't accept simple answers of the materials with which she works and leans over on the technique with a poetical certainty: the human being, despite its numerous imperfections, still is the beginning, the middle and the end of all artistic activity, either for technical, visual or existencial questions. Having this in sight, the painting of the artist appears as a promise to inquire, each time with bigger energy, the situation of the contemporaneous man before the world and itself.
