Marie speaks about her paintings from her studio in Bow. She has started a new series painting direct on paster with her oil colours. The plaster is so absorbent that every stroke has to be correct and she can't re-work it.
Marie goes back over her many drawings before starting a painting and often re-uses characters and ideas from previous series. The new work shows erotic intimacy and dark sexual encounters between couples, often featuring the type her work is known for. She likes to use the writing and secondary images within the images to build layers and meaning.
