Marielle is particularly interested in how painting has the great ability to demonstrate the illusion of space, but painting can also push through boundaries to disrupt and occupy real space. Her work utilizes the natural and the synthetic, regarding colour and materiality, to comment on the post-industrial landscape, and question how we may consider contemporary phenomenology. She is concerned with the toxicity unearthed at the hand of the human tapping into the earth’s crust. As pollution becomes a surrogate for nature, a relationship is forged between the toxic and the sublime.
