Artist Statement

 

These works draw from interests ranging from the organic structure of the human body on a cellular level to the graphic language of scientific structures and systems as well as a growing fascination with the ephemeral aspects of memory and perception. This recent investigation has led to the creation of a series of cut steel silhouettes with highly pigmented reverse sides that serve to reflect coloured light onto the adjacent wall bathing the work in a subtle glow or aura which hints at a latent energy or life force.  The afterimage effect of this impression underscores a new desire to explore the sensual rather than empirical aspects of our surroundings – something experienced as opposed to something observed. The imagery employed, ranging from the microscopic (vascular systems) to the cataclysmic (atmospheric electricity) are related in both form and function as complex and active pathways or conduits.

Artist Biography

Marianne Lovink has been a sculptor since 1984, based in Toronto, ON before her move to Philadelphia, PA - where she currently resides. Lovink has been represented by the Kostuik Gallery since 2000 and has exhibited her work extensively in public, non-profit, and commercial galleries and been the recipient of numerous municipal, provincial and federal arts council grants. Her work is represented in both public and private collections, including those of the The Canadian Consulate, Agnes Etherington Art Centre, Osler Hoskin and Harcourt; OMERS; City of Richmond Hill; Atlantis Films Canada, and University of Saskatchewan. In 2003 Lovink completed a large scale site-specific 11 ft. x 11 ft. commission from her thermoplastic Hanging Garden series for the Drake Hotel in Toronto, and in 2006 was short listed in the top Three of a London, UK based Sculpture competition. In 2010, she was commissioned to create a large-scale outdoor welded steel work to beautify the Lansdowne Fence Streetscape by the Toronto Transit Commission and was chosen to design the bicycle stand up locks by the City of Toronto in 2011. Lovink is an Associate Member of the Royal British Society of Sculptors.
