“Marván’s larger artistic impetus is experimental and community-minded.”

-JANA EISENBERG, THE PUBLIC, 2015

 

“Alicia Marván looks for inspiration in the emphatically mutable and evolving natural world…she is a nature artist first and foremost, in a comprehensive sense of the word nature, incorporating ideas about the evolution of species—including the human species, and so involving technology—to concerns about invasive species.”

-JACK FORAN, ARTVOICE, 2014

 

“From afar, the resulting artworks resemble computer printouts of wild architectural designs created with CAD software, like Frank Gehry buildings. Upon closer inspection, however, the intricate hand stitching of the pieces and the painstaking labor that went into creating each piece becomes clear.”

-COLIN DABKOWSKI, THE BUFFALO NEWS, 2014

 

Where the Bucks are Bigger and the Action is Bolder was searing and telling…an exposé of the fate of American consumption upon the female form. The imagery throughout the performance was haunting and took me back to the subconscious, social conditioning that I/we have been subjected to since childhood…courageously revealing!”

-CARA CADWALLADER, INDEPENDENT WRITER, 2005

 

“in Gather, directed by San Francisco artist Keith Hennessy, Marvan’s visually striking initial appearance, masked and costumed like a Wagnerian goddess…I could have watched an entire dance that was simply Marvan’s twisted but powerful walk with two tall staffs.”

-JANICE STEINBERG, SAN DIEGO UNION TRIBUNE, 2005

 

“In Passing for Four…a moment is illuminated; this is the essence of dance.”

-JENNIFER DE POYEN, SAN DIEGO UNION TRIBUNE, 2004
