SHAWN MARSHALL

   

ABOUT THE ARTIST AND HER WORK
The Louisville Visual Arts’ online publication Artebella described Shawn Marshall’s work as “a vivid and intriguing balance of abstract and representational, with a beautifully judged tension between an embrace of the highly developed impasto and the underlying landscape that lies beyond.” For her, this is the perfect metaphor for who we are as human beings; highly developed beings made up of multiple, sometimes hidden, layers underneath.

Marshall’s work is bold, colorful, full of texture and shadows that give a three-dimensional quality to the canvases. For her, painting is a meditative practice; an outlet to release intuitive energy and let go of preconceived notions and self-imposed rules or judgments of how she interprets and portrays the world both internally and externally. Marshall’s work or “practice” is restorative, as she creates what she calls “Inward Landscapes.”
