Description


Our ears are far less tolerant than our eyes

 

My work moves between humor and seriousness – between fantasy and experience. There are two directions; the “Gestalt – Tiere” (Character – Animals) and the “Lebensklang” (Sound of life).

The encounter with people in their diversity touches me and is the main theme in my art. The motives come through discussions and observations to me – without intent to paint it.
A work like “Seerosenmündung” or “Woman stands head / Head and heart” takes about 4 months to complete. The whole composition of structures, colors and details mean a lot to me and for that I take my time.
The choice of portray humans in an animal, also makes the often harsh reality or perhaps the exact and unsightly contempation, softer and more conciliatory.  The ugly and also the slant of the “Character- Animals” becomes through my implementation in delicacy of color and structure – in the whole of the picture to something beautiful.

I create my pictures from several layers. I bring depth layers back to the foreground – as well as structures and motifs in different steps, sometimes generous – or only individual parts of them. The painting process changes the original picture. It has its own dynamics and tells its own story. The process inspires me; I quarrel, fight and be happy with it, – and it always give me a challenges.

 

Wolfgang Nußbaumer M.A. (Lebensklang 2015 / Auszüge):


” … . Jener von Marion Meinberg baut sich in einem mächtigen
Akkord auf. In schmeichelnden Harmonien und herben Dissonanzen.
Sie hat viel erlebt, viel erfahren, viel nachgedacht. Schönes und
Hässliches, Fröhliches und Trauriges.
Ihr „Lebensklang“ enthält all das als bildhaftes Notat ihrer
Lebenserfahrung. Kunstvoll verschlüsselt natürlich.
Uns, den Betrachterinnen und Betrachtern, stellt sie über das reine
Sehvergnügen hinaus die Aufgabe, den richtigen Code, den richtigen
Deutungsschlüssel zu finden.“ …
„Ein Quäntchen von der Wahrheit im Bild haben wir
vermutlich erfasst, wenn wir auf uns selbst stoßen.
Welche Saite dann in uns erklingt, ist nun wirklich Privatsache.
Und nicht mehr die von Marion Meinberg.”
