Marjett’s new series is titled “Back to the Garden.”
“Like many of us during the Covid Quarantine, I draw solace from nature, even if it is only in my backyard.” – Marjett Schille
I am struck by the differences reported about the environmental renewal due to the limiting of human activity such as driving and air travel. This exhibition is about the beauty of nature and our connection to it. It is about hope that people will continue now to live in ways that allow nature to return, at least in part, to the Garden of Eden it once was.
In my paintings I strive to express the essence of an animal, bird or landscape through the emotional use of color. In pre-Covid times I frequently worked out of doors, receiving inspiration directly from nature. During the time of Covid, I’ve had to rely on memory and imagination to create these paintings. I hope you enjoy them.
