Marie Allen is a mixed-media artist, drawing inspiration from wild and ancient landscape and sea - particularly where there are ancient monuments, standing stones and far horizons.
'The themes in my paintings are to do with what is hidden, taking the viewer into the underworld, the layers in the history of the landscape, revealing archetypal symbols and marks that resonate with the deep unconscious in us all. For that reason I am drawn to ancient landscapes and standing stones, mountains and wild places. My aim in my work is to evoke an emotional response in the viewer, a sense of wonder and spirit of place'.
'I work on a series of paintings at the same time, begin with no end point in mind which allows each painting to develop its own unique history. As layers build, using collage for texture, I like to sand and scrape back revealing previous colours and marks. I like the revelation of the painting having its own history just as the landscape does'.
