Working within a primarily contemporary impressionistic execution, in an effort to artistically yield the beauty and fragility of the organic environment, Marion’s work seizes its inspiration from open air spaces. High country backdrops, clifftop perspectives and parkland sceneries and foliage bear great influence over the subjects and scapes she depicts. When commencing at the canvas she typically begins with a series of reference sources, such as photographic imagery or written materials whose linguistic descriptions align with her conceptual ideas. After sketching a sequence of images and determining precisely which genre the work will lean into, she experiments with a number of colour combinations and earnestly generates the work across a multitude of layers. Broad in scope yet refined in subject, Marion amalgamates expressionism, with bouts of abstract and realism, to portray scenes of affluence, contrast and inquiry.
