Marilee Salvator

I was somewhat surprised today when I realised that I hadn't included artist, Marilee Salvator here already.   She was one of my early internet friends.  That must have been 4 or 5 years ago.

 I felt that here was an artist making work about being a human being through the artworks she makes -  and not just talking 'the talk' .  What I mean is here was someone,  NOT  issuing forth a lot of  'pseudo intellectual'  artspeak in her statement OR HER WORK.

Her work is abstract and figurative varying from whatever the series is about.  The earlier pieces I saw of hers were "Raindrops" and "The Sexual Abuse" series  (the latter which I thought was a very brave move) you just have to admire that.  I don't think that I could have been that outspoken ( in a visual sense - as such).

Marilee's latest  artwork is a large installation  called "Growth Patterns "  see image below" concerned with cell growth in a medical biological sense.

I must say I am curious to find out more about it - how she made it - it seems to be printed on something other than paper ?
Perhaps I will check out her blog  http://marileesalvator.blogspot.com/
Here is Marilee's portfolio url    http://facstaff.bloomu.edu/msalvato/index.html  it's well worth a visit.
