Wonder offers vitality to each act of creation. Silent musings that echo and re-echo. Before the thoughts. Beyond the sky. The wonder of time past slipping through time present to new tomorrows. As I walk along paths imprinted from yesterdays, I’m accompanied by the shadows of the past. Movement forward opens up new understandings and visions. Breathing with unknowns, I anchor myself through creative acts. I use abstraction. I give voice to color, line, shapes geometric or not. I paint, draw, collage, build, and compose to communicate the movement of mystery, its resonance.
Marilyn is an artist residing in Philadelphia, and she continues to exhibit throughout the United States. Her art investigates geometrical and non-geometrical abstraction as fluctuating visual expressions of her thoughts on movement in time and space in a state of wonder. Experimentations with color, line, and media characterize her inner dialogues on time flowing from the past, slipping into the present, moving on...how to reveal and resonate that wondering? How is that wonder to enrich the present? Primarily a painter, she also creates altered books with used paperbacks, composes music, and experiments with other media.
