ARTS CYMRU QUALITY PRINCIPLES Marion was commissioned by Arts Cymru to produce a series of paintings for the launch of the new Quality Principles website. The brief specified communicating 3 concepts: 

Artist's Intention, Activity, People.
 
In response to the brief, structural lines provided a base to become dynamic visual metaphors, using symbolic imagery of 'the mountain' to suggest an artist's intention.  Textured, weathered surfaces onto re-claimed wooden boards suggested the passage of time.

Inspired by the Japanese art of Kintsugi, (broken objects mended by a mixture of gold leaf which honour their history to create unique objects, celebrating their imperfections) The use of gold leaf runs throughout the series, representing the quality underpinning the  concept of Arts Cymru's Quality Principles.

Dimensions: 30cm* 30cm, Acrylic, paper collage, image transfer, Japanese rice paper, gold leaf.
