Marianne Kolb’s work focuses on the human figure; quite literally it is the vehicle with which she most positively relates. Kolb does not approach the canvas with a particular image in mind, and with pigment in her hands, she works both spontaneously and randomly until the image begins to assert itself. This action depends on the imponderable, and welcomes the accidental.
“I’m preoccupied, fascinated, and curious about the solitariness and mysteriousness of human beings. The greater my curiosity, the more acute, the more complicated, complex, and suggestive the world around people becomes. I am driven and guided by sensory impressions: sound, color, texture, smell, shapes, expressions, tone, language, and light.
