Paintings by Marlene Capell

"My work is the record of my inquiry into life. It is a dialogue of discovery which is self-reflective and an outreach to others."

Marlene Capell thinks of painting as a metaphor for life and a connection to ancient beginnings and past cultures. She finds inspiration in the mysteries of Stonehenge and the Lion Gate of Mycenae, exploring these monoliths on her canvas.

She works by building layers, painting non-objectively in order to explore and discover emerging forms through the process. New layers are influenced by — and leave evidence of — previous ones. Like how civilizations are built upon what came before, and our lives are built one experience at a time. She often paints over other paintings entirely, producing new, richer images: metaphors for growth and evolution.
