Marilyn Henrion Artist Statement

While my original medium was paint, I soon discovered that textiles spoke to me in a way that paint never did, and became my medium of choice. The works, derived from my digitally manipulated photographs, may take the form of collage or hand quilted works. My aesthetic vision was always deeply rooted in the urban geometry of my surroundings, but that has expanded to include the natural world since moving to Texas. I am often conflicted about how much abstraction to employ. A fascination with the detail in the subject vies with the personal emotional component conveyed in the abstraction.
