Marion Smith - ABC...

Patriothall Gallery


The title ABC… refers to a genre of artists working in the mid 1960s who we recognise broadly as Minimalists. It is not intended to classify or brand the work, or as a stylistic gag, but as a starting point; acknowledging the past, engaging with the present and looking to the future.

Marion’s work expresses a fascination and dogged commitment to working with form, employing tangible matter and physical processes. The nature of the material that she works with, and the processes that are used often influence the forms that are created. The paring down or distillation of an idea to a pure and uncluttered resolution is intrinsic to the work.
