ARTIST STATEMENT

Marilyn Walter
Marilyn Walter’s art is inspired by “the swirling, poetic moments, when I close my eyes and allow real and invented experiences to intersect.” An avid educator who taught art that served 55+ in the Council Lifetime Learning Program for the Council House in New York, she also worked with the Intergenerational and Art & Memory art series. Currently, she is working on a Kinetic-Art-Makers Project, a collaborative that includes students, artists, makers and corporations and will be showcased at the 2017 International Art Exhibit and Symposium. Marilyn is also the artist-in-residence at The Hacklab, a community Maker space where tech, art, electronics, music, robotics, woodworking and mechanic collaborations are encouraged for research, wwwelopment and production of new works.

“People, places, thoughts, shapes and colors from everyday life move like quick films or snapshots; mysterious picture dramas shift between the seen and the unseen, and patterns, events or phrases become volatile and unsettling in my art. I document and observe these unfolding events.”
