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.
