MARJORIE GUYON
Guyon’’s work is simultaneously contemporary and ancient - layers of history and time
combine into visual poetry. To build her compositions, she applies marble dust and
builds the surface with glazed pigment - earth from all over the world. Layer upon layer of the two elements build up, under and over collage elements, creating a story.
The image simultaneously emerges from, yet disappears into, an ancient surface.
Her work appears in group and solo exhibitions in New York City, Chicago, Detroit,
Atlanta, Memphis and Los Angeles. She is known as well for the Nation of Nations
Project piloting now in Saratoga and Albany through the Capital District YMCA.
Significant awards and grants include The National Congress of Art and Design
Award of Excellence, New Forms Regional Initiative Grant, NEA and Rockefeller
Foundation. Her work appears in numerous private and public collections.
