Marie Mansfield

Marie’s work is instinctive and investigative, her intention is to catch a moment that tells a story.

 

As a tonalist Marie uses a limited palette to give a reflective memory-like mood to her paintings.

Her work has a subdued emotive resonance, she draws on everyday objects, situations and environments.

 

Marie’s interest involves presenting a scene that implies human interaction within a landscape or environment but without human presence, leaving a trace of energy – she is inviting the viewer to interpret a calm, amusing or melancholic narrative.


Her work is based on the familiar or on personal memory, creating an intimate inner experience that imprints on the painting.
