Contemporary Art in Acrylic and Oil
CLICK PICTURE TO ENLARGE
As a trained graphic artist (HTBLVA Graz-Ortweinschule for Visual Design, Graz) Marion Genser, born in Graz, Austria, has been creatively active for many years. She spent 10 years in Berlin as a 3D art director and self-employed artist acting in 2D and 3D. Since ten years she has been calling Vienna her home and fell in love with the beautiful region Catskill Mountains in Upstate New York where she lives now too.
Most recently, she has been working on projects that visualise fears and desires in a mystical context.
Techniques: Acrylic on Canvas, Oil on Canvas
In addition, she also prefers the Cinemascope format, as it creates a particular sense of excitement and expresses the yearning harboured within the cinema screen. In addition to her self stimulated creative output she is mainly acting as a commission painter.

MY STATEMENT FROM WORD TO IMAGE
Topics that occupy me take on a life of their own in my head after a while. Images then flow through me.
Like water through a faucet, a stream through a valley, and sunlight through a window.
Where they come from is both within me and beyond me, and I know this deeply, intuitively.
Sometimes there is even an independent melody to it.
And wherever I go in life, they will carry me.
VISUAL ART OR FANTASTICAL TRUTHS
One of the most important companions of history is visual art or even art history. Nothing is as present to us as contemporary art. Each time with its particular techniques and expressions. We live in a time of “cocoonings” for different reasons. We all desire art expressing strong, gloomy or very positive moods. In any case desire is always at the forefront.
WORLDVIEWS AND ART
The history of art and the various worldviews are inevitably interwoven with one another. As an artist, I love to interact and engage with all the important questions of our time. We cannot wait to make a positive impact somewhere. We cannot wait to save the world, to save people, and, at the same time, we are terrified of cultural decay. All of these themes are directly addressed in art.
THE AESTHETIC GAZE
Is there such a thing as aesthetic judgement? No, art is not about judgement. We are driven by curiosity and our addiction to pleasure. Creating aesthetic forms from the dark and the light is what drives me.
