Working in drawing, printing, painting, collage, sculpture, installation and textiles, my practise operates through a number of interdisciplinary strands, all of which share an engagement with the body as a means of communication and the relationship between our external and internal experiences.

About

 I usually begin with a sculpture, creating an individual using clay, plaster, or found objects. These have slowly built up into an extensive cast of characters. At this point, they are subjected to a process of experimentation, becoming part of an on-going series of drawings, watercolours, collages and installations. In reality: I sit down and I start making. They take on a life of their own; I follow them and test them. Perhaps that is not good enough. Perhaps you are disappointed. Or perhaps you will encounter a world – one of endless connotations, impressions, reflections and reproductions, where nothing is taken for granted, where every object and individual is deconstructed and reassembled, where everyone looks how they feel and no one knows where they are. You will see what you want to see.

 

About Mariette

I’m a third-year student at the Ruskin School of Art, working in drawing, printing, painting, collage, sculpture, installation and textiles.

Or perhaps you will encounter a world – one of endless connotations, impressions, reflections and reproductions, where the animate and inanimate merge, where nothing is taken for granted, where every object and individual is deconstructed and reassembled, where everyone looks how they feel and no one knows where they are. You will see what you want to see.
