textile artist and sculptor
The joy of vibrant colour and a love of light and translucence continues to play a large part in the work of Marion, now encompassing Fabric and Stitch, Sculpture and Painting.
Marion creates large sized sculptures, working from live models, by modelling in clay upon an armature, forming a mould and casting in cold cast bronze or in clear resin. These pieces may be placed either inside or outdoors. Marion is also working on ways of translating her fabric and cloth designs into sculptural forms. Patination in various colours completes the work.
A Secret Spirit is an animation DVD film of textile fantasy trees, responding to a study of Byzantine mosaic ceilings where the human figure is portrayed framed with trees of extraordinary liveliness, absurdity and spirit. Music and poetry are incorporated in the film with the dancing movement of the trees.
