Over the past several years Marianne's work has always edged up to possessing a certain quality of surreal abstraction. The imagery and formal elements such as color and paint handling have consistently been in complete support of this approach. This show travels even further into such territory. The subject matter suggests personal dreams and memories but still invite the viewer to draw their own conclusions as to what the work means. The show includes a mix of paintings with Marianne's characteristic rich and colorful tones combined with a series of monochromatic collage pieces. Each approach is distinctive but also complementary with regard for expressed themes.
