Maria Lalić was born in 1952 in Sheffield, England. She lives and works in Bath, England..
The artist’s three discreet but related painting series have developed over years of persistent practice and meticulous research. In the last 25 years, works from her series “Colour and Metal”, “History Paintings” and “Landscape Paintings” have been shown at Renate Bender’s gallery. In 2014 she began to work on a second series of ‘History Paintings’ called the “Monochrome History Paintings". In these she delves again into the historical and temporal background of pigments. Color is located in its era of invention – Cave to C20th – and the focus in these is on each separate color across all eras - Red, Yellow, Blue, Green, Purple, Brown, Black and White. When completed this series will total 45 paintings and each will be 85 x 85 cm.
