Marcia finds her inspiration in the early (abstract) painters of the 20th century: Mondriaan, El Lissitzky, Kandinsky, Malevich, Miro and for het use of color: Matisse, Marc and Delauney. The compositions are created intuitively. Color is an important element of the image. She sees herself as a representative of the art form of “reductive art”. This is an art form that uses a limited color palette and (repeatedly returning) graphic forms.

To all works applies that Marcia reduces the three dimensional world to two dimensions.
