Using acrylics on canvas and a hard edge technique, Marian employs abstraction, vibrant colour and flowing line in her interpretations of the rhythms inherent in nature, the human form and blues music. She adopts a minimalist approach in her representations of landscapes and seascapes which are often devoid of human figures and wildlife. In this way, she seeks to highlight the elemental and spiritual nature of her environment. Memory is also a theme in some of her most recent work – recalling her childhood migration across the sea.
Marian was a finalist in Hidden Faces: The 2018 Victorian Salon des Refuses, Pan Pacific, Melbourne; the 2017 Portia Geach Memorial Award, S.H. Ervin Gallery, Sydney; the 2018, 2017 & 2015 Annual Maritime Award, Mission for Seafarers Victoria; the 2018 & 2015 Who is Looking at You? Portrait Award, Cambridge Studio Gallery, Collingwood; and the 2017 & 2016 NAB Flanagan Art Exhibition, St Patricks College, Ballarat. She was also a semi-finalist in the 2017 Bluethumb Art Award. She has held two solo exhibitions and participated in a number of group exhibitions in Gippsland, Euroa and Melbourne.
