Marnie's work is a response to organic forms and the ever-changing designs created by light, movement and time.
This experience is translated through a range of techniques. Her exploration of both printmaking and painting allows each process to inform and enhance the other. Printmaking techniques have a very strong influence on the way the paint is applied, and often wiped away leaving a shadowy residue highlighting the textures of the surface. Activation of the surface is an integral part of her practice and adds to the diversity of mark and allows a more spontaneous and confident mark to emerge.
Extensive use of layering in these works, emulates the natural processes, shadows and subtle variations in texture and light and thus a complexity is revealed in seemingly simple structures.
With a strong focus on shape, outlines and shadows, natural forms are accentuated and abstracted to create interesting compositions reminiscent of natural layering and evolving light patterns.
