A Coastal Perspective

February 16, 2019 - April 4, 2019

The theme of Marion's paintings is "A Coastal Perspective", bringing together her art and the drama of our forthcoming production of "The Tempest". Marion has a BA(Hons) Degree in Fine Art. Her background is in Arts education. Marion's move to the south coast gave her the impetus for a new style of painting and a new raft of work. She paints full time out of her studio in Lymington. Local sources of inspiration include masts and rigging, coastal birds and the sea. A long-standing passion for painting in oils has been augmented through experimentation with cold wax which has opened up new ways of creating texture in her work. Composition and abstraction are challenges Marion relishes and her paintings are generally constructed from more than one viewpoint. Her work encompasses two main subjects on different scales. The first subject: views seen from onboard sailing boats including masts, rigging and sails. The aim is to capture the dynamic experience of being at the helm and/or sailing. Compositions are derived from various views and are generally large scale, bespoke format eg 44cm x 88cm. These paintings employ an original, authentic approach to the subject matter and have generated interest from the sailing fraternity. The second subject: coastal birds, observed on the Lymington to Keyhaven Nature Reserve. These paintings are small scale eg. 28cm x 19cm. Their innovative use of highly textured cold wax helps to capture the light effects on the mudflats and water frequented by waders such as Oystercatchers, Curlew and Avocet.
