MARILYN ELLIS’ PAINTINGS 2005 – 2012
STRING PAINTINGS FROM AN ELEGANT UNIVERSE
Marilyn’s work has always been abstract dating from early Abstract Expressionism to Magical Realism up through her latest images dealing with the “String Theory” of Physics. For the past 20 years, well known physicists have been working on a Theory of Everything (T.O.E.) that deals with the micro to the macro cosmos. Brian Greene of Colombia University has written several books on this theory and been on PBS in a “String” series for Nova. Poets, writers, musicians and this artist find it facinating and envigorating. Never have Marilyn’s lines been so abstract and her colors more dynamic. It brings the Art, Music and the Physical worlds together as well.
Think of the dynamic vibrancies of stringed instruments from the classical guitar, to the viola, violin and bass. Art, Music, and Physics work as one elegant world.
