USING ELEMENTS FROM MY ON GOING SERIES OF PHOTGRAPHY,  INFLUENCED BY NATURE AND TECHNOLOGY,  

I EDIT AND MANIPULATE THE IMAGES AND THEN ASSEMBLE THEM INTO VISUAL   LANDSCAPES,  CREATING DEPTH WITHOUT PERSPECTIVE, CREATING WORLDS TO GET LOST IN. MY INSPIRATION IS FROM ARABIC AND ASIAN CULTURES.

IN THE “MASTER SERIES” I EXPLORE LANDSCAPES, FLORALS AND THE WORLD AROUND ME.  IMAGES ARE LAYERED, CREATING AN ETHEREAL EFFECT.

October's Featured Artist - Marlyn Daggett

Marlyn has a distinctive and recognizable style of abstract expressionism. Jean-Michel Basquiat, Richard Diebenkorn, and Manuel Neri’s work uniquely influence her paintings. She combines figures, symbols, icons and text in vivid oil paintings. Instrumental in her work are the representations of birthday cake, brides, and obscured or nude figures. These are sometimes inscribed or gouged to reveal traces and layered images. The results are powerful, moving monochromatic textural works.
