MARIANNE GARGOUR

 

ARTIST STATEMENT

Marianne's style of painting is often categorized as abstract impressionism. Marianne reveals traditional themes with contemporary marks. Ms. Gargour juxtaposes the duality between the rational and irrational. Her formal training in value, color and composition pushes up against her bold and raw marks that stem from an involuntary, unconscious place. Her brush strokes almost float above the representational realm. " I try to share my inner emotions while also admiring a place or moment in time. I am guided by my intuition. I believe that our subconscious guides decisions and then the rational mind organizes the stories we create. I want to both pay homage to the beautiful perfect world we live in while also revealing the internal dialogue that continually informs our perceptions. I seek to reveal that inner chaos that we all experience and that we often tame into calm appearances".
