ABOUT THE ART & ARTIST
Grounded in a clinical and research background in psychology, Marian blends her scientific study of the soul into the boundless mystery of the arts. With aspirations towards a multidisciplinary career (in art, neuroscience, wellness and international business), she is currently building a collection that echoes her efforts to creatively bring her analytic and artistic abilities together. Much like the deification of concepts in mythology, this series works to re-imagine the faces of a given cultural landscape.
"The Charleston Collection: Anthropomorphizing the Lowcountry"
A visual exploration where local cuisine, architecture, music, wildlife, etc. is transformed into abstract portraits. With a special focus on female narratives, her love of experimentation comes together in simple line-work and in the layered painting of new faces and personalities when challenged to translate a favorite food, venue, or meaningful story or song into a person!
"What would this song look like?"
"What appearance and personality would a Bloody Mary drink have?"
"Portrait of a goddess as an oyster pearl?"
Want a custom anthropomorphic portrait as your favorite food or song?
