DESCRIPTION

Like the archeological subjects that so fascinate her, Marlene Capell makes works that reflect the passing of time: a process of building, destroying, and rebuilding again.  As the artist works and reworks her canvases, she leaves evidence of what came before. Adding layer upon layer, yet allowing hints of what is underneath, what becomes clear is that the process is the purpose.  The paintings that are ultimately the result of this process are rich with luxuriant surfaces and glowing, earthy color.
