Beneath The Surface was curated by Newport International Airspace and received funding from The Project Space. It featured a gallery space, shop and was the venue for evening performances.

The regeneration of Newport city centre was the inspiration behind the series of mixed media paintings. 

Marion was inspired by artists Sandra Blow (1925-2006) and Richard Diebenkorn (1922-1993) and Japanese philosophy Kintsugi the mending of broken ceramics with a mixture of gold powder.

Sketches of the building construction were initially made from the safety and high vantage point of The Chartist Tower and the photography archive of developers Bowmer & Kirkland. 

 Each painting is 30cm * 30cm, Oil, Paper and Gold Leaf on Canvas.
