Marian Decker: Oil and Acrylic

About the Artist:

From the beginning of humankind, the image has been used in the service of communication.

It has served magic, religion, and politics — the purposes of love and of war. But in any era, whether the artist intends it or not, he or she is a prism through which experiences and observations pass. The work of art becomes a reflection.

My personal prism was formed from a study of music and dance as well as visual art. It includes a lifetime of hiking through the mountains and walking the beaches with painting kit, sketchbook and camera as my steady companions. Often, a small plein air painting will come home with me. When I began my painting career, my work was primarily non-objective. As time went by, my appreciation of nature's beauty led me to a more representational style. Now I find myself going back to my beginnings. In observing the landscape, I analyze and abstract. In the act of painting, I allow my spirit to go where neither the intellect nor the camera can follow. I feel the unity of all arts; the dance in nature's motion; the music of color and line.
