Everything is Illuminated
During this time, Marianne made much use of iridescent acrylics, so titling the series 'Everything is Illuminated.' She explored iridescent paint both years in a 'seasons' series, and other experimental paintings. Though the luminescence is difficult to photograph, the paintings' reflective qualities are particularly evident at night. Perhaps this work is all a metaphor for what happens to one's work as one's partner's life has ended.
The three-painting homage (below) to William and his life was created on my return to painting five months after his death in late April, 2015.
