Born in 1962 - Netherlands
Marian Williams, born in Rotterdam, Netherlands in 1962, lives and works in France.
Although art is all around within the family, Marian choses to take various detours in life to finally arrive at her true passion.
After studying physical education and physiology she specializes in management of sport events. A career that continues after arriving in France in 1987, as managing director of a New York based design company.
Her passion for art, graphics and images never left her and in 2010 she definitely turns towards art, creating mixed media compositions, combining collage, painting and sculpting.
Since, her work has been on show in France, England, the Netherlands, Italy, Albania and in the USA.
The printed material used for the analog compositions are all authentic original illustrations dating from 1900.
Marian has approached collage from different angles and styles and has taken the challenge to produce collage on big format and as mosaics. Her story telling is expressed in various ways, sometimes minimalist sometimes loaded.
The works, influenced by pop art, surrealism and animamix, show originality and freshness. The early compositions are created with exclusively paper, later combined with both acrylic and oil paint. Printed material is cut, ripped or torn and sometimes only used for the ink print.
"Art for me is story telling with the less words possible; transforming images that are charged with concepts and ideas into new compositions, leaving a large space for the viewer's imagination and interpretation.
I try to create harmony and movement in each work playing with space, light, color and a sense of humor. "
