Marianne Slevin’s mixed media works ‘Compostela-Field of Stars’ can be viewed in the Clare Museum from January 12th – February 6th, 2016.
Her work features improvisations and explorations of chance in ink and oil paint on various surfaces. They are mainly 2 dimensional drawings and paintings, but some found and everyday objects are turned into art objects with her use of ink.
The drawings are experimental and made using a combination of chance, intuition and feeling. In some cases Marianne uses the elements such as the wind or a leak in the kitchen window to create the drawings.
She also uses the ‘accidental’ in her work, such as an ink spillage on the stone floor. Other times she devises games of chance, rolling objects that hold meaning for her, like a fortune teller, and drawing around them to reveal a visual map. She often works in ways where she has very little control, and the environment she is in, her own body and intuition have a chance to play, rather than the decisions being made only using her head.
