Peller Marion is the kind of person who after swimming to shore following an eighteen foot shark attack finds herself comforting the hysterical onlooker. She’s brave and honest like a stand-up comic using humor and irony to express life’s difficult events in the midst of a crisis.
Her paintings, collected here, are full of energy and spontaneity – unafraid to be emotional. They are not easy listening. They are visual jam sessions. The reward is in allowing the viewer to be in the complexity of the mark making.
Peller’s approach to making art, which she has shared in her workshops at O’Hanlon Center for the Arts is to give oneself permission to create by allowing visual elements to emerge without judgement and, to avoid premature decisions of the painting’s outcome or meaning. In this process her art has many layers with its own rich history and archeology containing an authentic visual language that expresses who she is and what she feels. You need strength and humor to survive life’s crises.
When we allow ourselves to look more deeply into Peller’s art, we have a better understanding of ourselves and the times we all live in.
