About the Artist
– Marjorie Smith
Marjorie began working at Gallery Anthony as gallery manager in 2002
when it expanded into larger premises.
After spending some time surrounded by an abundance of art materials and
creativity she could not resist the allure of painting.
Taught to sew and embroider
at an early age it was textiles to which she was drawn initially, producing
practical items and clothing and later wall hangings. She took Art as her second subject on her
honours degree course in education and specialised in ceramics and did some
printmaking. After moving to Cornwall she took up
stained glass but as with ceramics she enjoyed the design process more than the
actual making. She has taken the organic
forms of her ceramic work, the segmentation of stained glass and her love of
colour combining them to produce beautiful forms.
She paints a colour blend
first using artist quality water soluble pastels from Caran D’Ache on Oriental
paper. When dry she looks for
inspiration from the blends. An organic
shape begins to form in her mind and she draws it many times before deciding on
the final shape which she then cuts out. She doesn’t look to confine the colour
within shapes but to let the cut form place a framework in contrast to the
unstructured colour blend.
